You can say: لا = no= Laa Neither = و لا = neither, but if u translate word by word it'll be (and no). We usually say for the famous form ' Neither ... nor .... Do something. " لا هذا و لا ذاك = neither this nor the other = Laa haatha wa laa thaaka Word to word translation: لا = no = laa ( the 'aa' is like the 'a' in fat but a little longer ) هذا= this =Haathaa ( we pronounce the 'H' like the 'H' in Hand ) و = and = wa ذاك = 'the other' (I’m not sure, but it's used while pointing.Because other=آخر =Aakhar ) = Thaaka ( the ‘th’ Is like in ‘there’ ) Ex: لا أنا و لا أنت يستطيع أن يطير Neither I nor you can fly . Laa anaa wala anta yastati'ou an yatir . There a are a plenty of forms , and this is one among 'em . Good Luck AL ;-) P.S. Be aware Arabic is written from right to left.

yes = na'am (not that the second "a" is the 18th letter in Arabic) no = laa neither = laa "X" wa laa "Y"...
