How is it said when a woman invites another woman to sit and have tea?

Taali is the feminine form. I think you could also say something like 'yella nashrob shay'. More like 'Come on let's drink tea.' That is what I have often heard used.

Hello all.

I am not fluent in Arabic and have not spoken it for some 18 months, apart from the odd swear word, but surely 'yella nashrob shay' translates to "GO drink shai". shouldn't that be "Taali nashrob shai" as in 'Come drink tea'?

In abydos we always said "sharub" for 'drink' and "sharub shai?" was the usual way of offering tea (I think Nashrob is Cairo). Monkin shai (do you want tea) or Monkin sharub shai (do you want to drink tea) were also used.

You could say "Taali ani sharub shai" Come I am drinking tea, which is feminised with the ani as apposed to "Taali ana sharub shai" which has the mascaline ana

Oops, I nearly added a message to Mirry, then noticed the date of the penultimate post! It's a good idea to mention you are reviving an old post when you add to it, KinA! :lol:
