What with the proliferation of Arabics in the world..I
can seem to figure out the exact pronunciation of some
words and sounds...

How does one say  'grandmother' in Classical Arabic?

Surely someone must know...Danny Wier perhaps?

Is is   /Zida/ or  /gida/  or /dZida/  ?

 jim + daal + taa-marbuuTa

and what about 'my grandmother'?

/Ziditi:/  /Zid@ti:/
or...something else?

thanks for any help :)
