I want to know more Arabic expressions like " Ya salam"!

 

I want to know Arabic expressions that are commonly used in conversation. For example " Ya salam" is for interest, astonishment and wonder. " Khousara" is like saying "what a pity." "Bgad/ Bjad/ 3njad " can be used to say "really?" ect.

Is there a expression like "Oh my God" when you can't believe something? Is it " Ya rab"?

Is there also a expression of regret or dissatisfaction when something goes wrong?

I would love to learn more expressions from people because usually books don't teach this kind of stuff that is also important in communication.

    there's allot of expression you can use for the single word but for example
    Oh My God : Ya elahi ,, Ya allah ,, Ya Lal Hawl

    for something goes wrong : Egyptian accent : "ma eysahesh ما يصحش ,, ya housti يا حوستي ,, ya lahwi يا لهوي ,,ya nhar aswad يا نهار اسود "

    in Jordanian accent : ya weeli يا ويلي ,, ya sater يا ساتر

    Assalamoalikum, It is good to visit this site it has plenty of Arabic expressions:

    "Is there a expression like "Oh my God" when you can't believe something? Is it " Ya rab"? "

    yep there is plenty of those, you can use : "btehke jad ?" or "jad wallah" or you may use "ya allah" which is the same as "ya rab"


    "Is there also a expression of regret or dissatisfaction when something goes wrong? " you may use "ya 5osara" , "haram heek eyser", "mesh metsahleh"


    I hope that helps

    Regards and enjoy Arabic

    OH my God can be ya allah for classical, or ya lahwy for egyptian arabic
    when something goes wrong we say "ya nhar eswed" something means what a black day
