fun facts about arabic (the language)

There's a great article on why learning arabic is so hard.

There are a lot of fun facts (well, they would be fun to trivia mavens and geeks).

numbers are marked for gender -- but most numbers take the opposite gender from the word they are modifying

a present tense verb has 13 forms

adjectives modifying nonhuman plurals always have a feminine singular form -- meaning that "the cars are new" comes out as "the cars, she are new"

I don't know how accurate that all is. Probably very. But it sounds cool. and yeah, really difficult to learn.
