    the word "بس"change in the context of the sentence and it has more than one meaning.
    I can think of three meanings right now
    one is (but ) , (that's it?, nothing more ) and if the speaker is shouting it means (enough).

    It has a lot of meanings ,, like they said before , but most of the time it used as "enough"

    It is informal word and it has 2 meanings in Arabic:
    The first is "just"
    ex: عندي صديق واحد بس
    " I have just one friend"
    so just=بس

    the second is "that's enough"
    and it is to order someone to stop something he is doing..
