Wehr Wednesdays #145

A new word or phrase from the Hans Wehr dictionary, every Wednesday.

لا يني (with foll. imperf.) not to tire (of doing s.th.)

Root: و-ن-ي

Page: 1291*

Example: “لا يَني يَتَدَخَّلُ في شُؤونِهِم”

Translation: “he doesn’t tire of interfering in their affairs”


  • و-ن-ي is an example of a mixed root—it’s both assimilated and defective
