Not only that, it's a particularly galling non-answer. Your comment suggests that you looked up the definition of "cursive," skipped over the actual definition, and focused myopically on the etymology. So how about going back and actually reading the definition?seaborgium wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 11:39 pmYou didn't answer my question.TenPoundHammer wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 10:42 pmThe etymology of the word seems to come from a Latin word for "running". What does that have to do with Arabic?
The reason you "wouldn't remotely consider Arabic 'cursive'" is because you don't understand what the word "cursive" means. You therefore didn't have the requisite knowledge base to solve this FJ! That's fine. It happens to all of us. Read about what you didn't know, do your best to commit this new knowledge to memory, and come back and try again tomorrow.
