Each letter in the alphabet is challenging and unique to the
language it is used in. In fact, the letters themselves distinguish the
languages, especially in terms of pronunciation. One of the distinctive Arabic
letters will be highlighted in today's blog. After studying a few more letters
in the Arabic alphabet, it's time to move on to the letter Taa’.
The letter Taa’ isn’t equivalent to any of the English letters.
However, it is close in pronunciation to the letter T in English but it is a
forceful sound. To pronounce it properly, put the tip of your tongue between
your teeth, and pull the middle section down. Apply air pressure against your
teeth and let it out forcefully. To help, try imagining Taa’ like a pressuring
T. The letter Taa’ only functions as a consonant letter. You will find
everything you need about the letter Taa’ in today's blog. How it looks like,
its shapes depending on its position in a word and some words with the letter
