*حاسس حاله مريض (because شخص is masculine -- unlike all those clones of "persona" in the European languages :)).

لا, مو حاسس حالي مريض, انا منيح
No, I'm not feeling unwell, I'm well.

الشخص اللي تحتي بيحب يغني
The person after me likes singing.

Yeah it's a participle. Where did you find this expression (حاسس حاله), in Syrian Colloquial? I didn't know it.

!ايه، بحب بغني. بغني دايما

*بحب غني

.الشخص اللي تحتي يحكي كوردي

*بيحكي

ايه, بحكي كردي بالمستوى المتوسط
Yes, I speak Kurdish at the intermediate level.

الشخص اللي تحتي حيكون ويجاي, و هو حيخبّرنا شو حيساوي بتورونتو هالصيف
The person below me will be Vijay, and he will tell us what he will do in Toronto this summer.

Yeah, Emily says it in the last dialogue. Apparently, the expression I should have used was actually
حاسس حاله مرضان, or probably even better just something like مرضان اليوم (i.e. الشخص اللي تحتي مرضان اليوم).

ايه، أنا ويجاي بس بالحقيقة، أنا ما رحت على تورونتو و مالي عرفان حالي رايح على تورنتو هالصيف ولا لا. :?:

Yes, I am Vijay, but actually, I didn't go to Toronto, and I don't know whether I'll go this summer or not.

الشخص اللي تحتي بيشرب كتير الحليب. :?:

The person below me drinks a lot of milk.
