Welcome to LisaanMasry, the largest and most comprehensive set of learning resources for Egyptian Arabic

The word search facility of the dictionary makes it easy to find a word, either in English or in Egyptian Arabic, even if you are not sure how to spell it exactly. It is equally easy to use for Egyptians and Europeans, and is suitable for occasional use or for serious students. Egyptian words are written both in arabic script with tashkyl (short vowels) and in european writing, and there are recordings of somebody saying the main forms of each word.

In addition to the dictionary, there is also a thesaurus, example sentences, an introduction to egpytian arabic grammar, and tools to help you learn vocabulary, improve your pronunciation and read and write arabic.

It is available in several formats, so that you can use the dictionary whenever, wherever you need it. Check out the table below for the features available on each format, then either go to the download page or use links on the left to get more information.
