Arabic

If there was a ( ً ) on the last letter of طالبة , we say it as ( talibatan ) , but because there is no diacritic on the last letter, it’s wrote and said as ( taliba ).

Notice that the last letter of the word طالباً has a diacritic which is ( ً ) so that it was written as ( taliban ), also we cannot say ( taliba ) for males [ taliba is a word for females ]

For the second question, about Yawnan, Yawm

Numbers above 10 in Arabic has rule and separated into two groups:

#11, #12 :

If we are counting something male, so the number gender has to be male, and so that for female

Yawm = day —> in Arabic is male, so that the number 11 must be male أحد عشر يوماً

#13 - #19 :

These numbers must have the opposite gender of what we are counting

ثماني عشرة طالبة

طالبة female —> so the number must be male, and as it is in the example ثماني not ثمانية

ثلاثة عشر يوماً

يوماً = yawman = male

So the number must be female

ثلاثة not ثلاث

أربع عشرة رحلة

رحلة female , so the number must be male

أربع not أربعة
