Note: any Arabic noun word (or
adjective) is either a definite noun (has the definite
article) or an indefinite noun (has the indefinite declension " Noonation").
Some definite nouns do not need to have the definite article (e.g. proper
names). Some indefinite nouns cannot take the indefinite declension (the
"forbidden to Noonation nouns"). Proper names (especially people's names)
will usually take Noonation even though they are definite. Note that the
declension of a noun (case sign + Noonation if required) is an essential
part of the word that cannot be omitted in proper Arabic. Adding the right
declension is obligatory at all times. However, they are frequently
overlooked by many people who find them too difficult.
