9ghantuut





This cutesy slang word finds its swiftest application on small dogs and for al-baby over there that looks no more than half-a-day old. shuuf al-baby, the people coo, 9ghantuut!

Or if the baby is a girl, 9ghantuutah!

Another dimension of cuteness that seems to crop up often in Kuwait is when something is ba66ahwhich incidentally is also the word for 'duck.' So when a baby 9ghantuut is also ba66ah, they're destined to hit the jackpot when it comes to post-Ramadan cash presents.

And to end the post, we have a musical interlude in which today's word is sung by some kids doing the locomotive.
