In this second episode dedicated to regional Egyptian accents, I chat with Taha Seweidy from the northeastern Egyptian city/ governorate of Domyat (Damietta), who is currently working as a doctor in Brighton.
Taha, who also has his own book review podcast كتاب في الخمسينة talks us through the various features of the Domyati accent, while giving us a good idea of when and where you are most likely to encounter such features.
Thanks to Taha for the pleasant and informative chat!
In the overview below, as with our last Alexandria episode, I have broken down our conversation, giving you the timestamp of the topics we discussed, and the main features of Domyati masri compared to Cairene masri.
Enjoy, and let me know if you have any comments or questions!
