A new word or phrase from the Hans Wehr dictionary, every Wednesday.
لا يتزعزع unshakable
Example: “كانَ يَملِكُ إيماناً لا يَتَزَعْزَعُ”
Translation: “he had unshakable faith”
As we can see, this verb is derived from a quadriliteral (four-letter) root.
تَزَعزَعَ / يَتَزَعزَعُ is a form II verb—in terms of the quadriliteral verb patterns—and its مصدر would be تَزَعزُع.
