Question about لا

Postby ALX12321 » 2014-10-22, 23:58

I'm currently taking Arabic at my university. My teacher is a native Jordanian. While we were learning the alphabet, he said that when writing ل and ا together, people don't usually write it out as لا, but that's how I've always seen it.

So my question is is this right? Or is this a local/ personal thing?

Okay, he clarified what he meant a bit. He meant that they don't usually write it out as fancy as that. This makes more sense to me.

Hello, I think your teacher is saying that's how they write it in type, but in normal handwriting it is not written like that.

This is how lots of people write it normally. Not exactly the same as Arial لا, but close.
