    hi number 6 in Arabic : is " sitta"
    Sitta ..

    it is *setta*


    " Sete' " (Seteh, Set, Sette) is how the people who speak the Levantine Arabic in Lebnan pronounce the name of the number 6...
    Hello ,In MSA both are right,but we use "set" when we are talking about feminine object.
    Ex: ست مدارس ،ست عربات
    sit 3rabat,sit madares
    Six vechiles,six schools.

    The other one "sitta" is used for masculine,ستة رجال => sittat rejal (six men)
    ستة أقلام => sittat aklam (six pens)
    Note:i wrote "sittat not sita because of "الحركات" "
