57 Spanish Words that Actually Come From Arabic | Super Easy Spanish 61

The Arabic language has had a major influence on Spanish. Some estimates put the number of Arabic words in Spanish at around 4,000. As well as the 47 Arabic words that Rawad pronounces, can you find the 10 others that are hidden throughout the video?

Note on the Arabic words:
In some cases, to show the connection between Arabic and Spanish more easily, we have shown the classical or Spanish Arabic word, rather than the word most Arabic speakers would use today.

*Albur: We made a video about this word! Check it out if you’re unsure about the meaning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SjZ91Wnstc&ab_channel=EasySpanish
The connection of Mexican Albur to Arabic is in doubt. The origins of this phrase are mysterious! However, the Spanish word “albur”, which can refer to a kind of fish, or be a synonym of “azar”, almost certainly does come from Arabic.
