How do I say "I want to drink coffee" in Levantine/Syrian Arabic? Specifically, I want to know How do I use infinitives with "I want..." in Syrian/Levantine Arabic? As in, "I want to go to the store", or "I want to read a book" I have the conjugations of each word, so I'm under the impression "I want..." would be "...بري". But after that I'm lost. Would it be "BiDi SheReB aL-AWEY"? or, am I way off? Also, my arabic reading isn't great yet. Can you include English transliteration in your answer(s) Shukkran! :)

Well , after the word "i want" = biddi we don't put the verb in infinitive , we put it in the present , it's not like english . So you say : بدي اشرب قهوة you're welcome
