A new word or phrase from the Hans Wehr dictionary, every Wednesday.
استنفد كل وسع (kulla wus’in) to exhaust, or avail o.s. of, every possibility
Example: “ماذا سَنَفعَلُ الآنَ؟ قَد اِستَنفَدنا كُلَّ وُسع”
Translation: “what are we going to do now? We’ve exhausted every possibility”
- This reminds me of the post Six Ways to Say “Can” or “to be Able to” in Arabic—because one of the ways we looked at was بوسع!
