إزّيّ - izzayy With stress on the “ز z” and the “ي y”. Used to ask about something’s or someone’s condition and always comes at the beginning: How’s the weather? How are you? إزّيّ الجو؟ إزّيّك؟ - izzayy elgaw? Izzayyak? إزّاي - izzaay With stress on the “ز z” and a long “ا aa”. Used to ask about the method/way of doing something and comes at the beginning or the end: How do I make pizza? How do I eat it? أعمل بيتزا إزّاي؟ آكلها إزّاي؟
