Arabic Forms Chart (Verb Forms I-X) Poster

At the very heart of Arabic grammar are the ten forms, or “measures”, on which the vast majority of verbs are based. These essential forms work as a master key for unlocking the Arabic language. Below is a brand new poster providing these 10 forms in a clear and easy-to-use grammar table.

Available as a high-quality poster at the official Nigel of Arabia store!

The Arabic Forms Chart poster lists the three main “tenses” in each of the 10 forms, both in the active and passive:

  • perfect (used for the past tense)
  • imperfect (used for the present tense)
  • future (a modified form of the imperfect used for the future tense).

The active and passive participles are also given, as well as the imperative (used for issuing an order or giving directions), along with the verbal nouns for each form.

The verbal noun for Form I verbs varies significantly, with at least a dozen different patterns found among Form I verbs, including:

فِعْل ، فَعْل ، فُعْل ، فَعَل ، فُعُول ، فُعْلَان ، فَعَالَة ، فَعَال ، فِعْلَة …etc.

Further notes:

  • Although Form VII is already primarily passive in meaning, some Form VII verbs are able to be conjugated in the passive form. Therefore, the chart provides both the active and passive for Form VII, when other posters may choose to omit the passive entirely.
  • Form IX, mainly used to describe colors or defects, does not have a passive form, and therefore n/a is written in the relevant parts of the table.

Poster: Arabic Numbers Made Easy!

You won’t find anything clearer or more easy to use than this guide to numbers in Arabic, which successfully breaks down one of the most complex parts of Arabic grammar, making it as easy as 1, 2, 3…!

I created this poster with the learner in mind and have designed it to be as user-friendly as possible. Suited to all levels of Arabic, it covers all cardinal numbers, along with Arabic numerals, example nouns and essentials of grammar, such as which case the noun should be in. To help with pronunciation, the Arabic has been fully vowelled and English transliteration has been provided for each number.

Never again be frustrated by the grammar of Arabic numbers…
