Laughing I am sorry, I was confused you with someone else who has asked me about "kidayr" in Moroccan Arabic.

Alright, Actually it's an Arabic word "هَذَرَ" which means someone who talks about nothing, and we say for someone who talks a lot: رجل مهذار

So remember in Moroccan Arabic, we have no sound of "ذ" and  ظ

ق = نفس صوت القاف في العربية الفصحى

ذ = تشترك مع مخرج الدال فتنطق دالا

ظ = تشترك مع مخرج الضاد فتنطق كحرف الضاد

Yeap, we say for portable for the portable phone, we have a sound of "p" in Moroccan Arabic.

about keep dayreen? كيف دَايْرِينْ ؟

actually is originaly Persian word which means lively/ active/energetic...

So, it's like you say: who's you eneregy ? hehe, it sounds strange but logical to say.

keef dayr? - how are you? (M)

keef dayra? - how are you? (F)

keef dayr huwa? -how is he? (M)

keef dayra hiya? -how is she? (F)

keef dayreem? - how are you all? (M&F)

keef dyaraat? - how are you all? (F)

keef dayreen huma? - how are they? (M&F)

keef dayraat huma? -how are they? (F)
