Unlike standard Arabic, there are no personal pronouns for dual; more than one person is considered like plain plural.

There is no auxiliary such as (to be) in Moroccan Arabic, just like standard Arabic. You add whatever adjective or noun to the personal pronoun and you’re expressing your state.

Examples:

I am Fatima = Anâ Fatima. أنا فاطمة

I am sick (m.) = Anâ mrîD. أنا مريض

I am beautiful (f.) = Anâ zwîna. أنا زوينة

I am a doctor (m) = Anâ Tbîb. أنا طبيب
