Other comments: Egyptian Arabic has a decimal system. The numeral 'one' is the only numeral in Egyptian Arabic which show gender. The under-dotted consonants are 'alveolar' stop, fricative or flap. 

Egyptian Arabic, locally known as Colloquial Egyptian, is the most widely spoken vernacular Arabic dialect in Egypt spoken by approximately 83,000,000 speakers. Egyptian Arabic is a dialect of the Arabic language, which is part of the Afro-Asiatic language family. It originated in the Nile Delta in Lower Egypt. Egyptian Arabic evolved from the Quranic Arabic which was brought to Egypt during the seventh-century AD Muslim conquest that aimed to spread the Islamic faith among the Egyptians. The grammatical structure of Egyptian Arabic is influenced by the Egyptian Coptic language which was the native language of the vast majority of Nile Valley Egyptians prior to the Muslim conquest. Also the dialect itself was later influenced to a lesser-extent by foreign and colonial European languages such as French, Italian, Greek,  Ottoman and English.
