Complete Definition of "sun letter"

English
wikipedia|Sun letters
Noun
en-noun

  1. One of fourteen Arabic letters that cause the "L" of a preceding definite article to be assimilated. Actually, the sun letter suppresses the sound of the "L" and then geminates: al + sin = as-sin. The effect of the sun letter is limited to pronunciation and does not change the spelling: ARchar|اÙصÙÙ. The fourteen sun letters are:

::ARchar|ت , ARchar|Ø« , ARchar|د , ARchar|Ø° , ARchar|ر , ARchar|ز , ARchar|س , ARchar|Ø´ , ARchar|ص , ARchar|ض , ARchar|Ø· , ARchar|ظ , ARchar|Ù , ARchar|Ù

:The rest of the letters are moon letters, which do not affect the pronunciation of the definite article.
