Read 3 anime lyrics (counts as 1), 4 pages of my Arabic learning book (counts as 2), and the third chapter of Astonishing X-Men in Arabic (counts as 4). When I was reading Astonishing X-Men, the one who looks like a blue beaver says "Aina qohwah?" and I know that "aina" meant "where" but forgot what "qohwah" is. It sounded familiar, but thought it was a profession. Coincidently, when I was continuing doing the task in my Arabic learning book, one of the question was "Mata tasyrobiina qohwata?" and I knew that "tasyrobiina" means "you girl drink", so I remembered that "qohwah" is a beverage and it means coffee. Oh, and by the way, do any of you know what's the meaning of "Kannaas"? I'm stuck in that word when reading the Arabic schoolbook for 2nd grader.

If it is spelt like this:
Kaf - Alif - Lam (!!) - Nun - Alif - Sin,
then it means: like the humans.

Because it is kaf for: like/similar to, then an-naas (spelt "al-naas"), i.e. the humans.

It's spelt without the Lam, it's just one word, and the Nun is doubled with tasydid.

كنّاس ? If so, it means sweeper.

كناس: (independently of the tashkil of the Kaf and the presence/absence of a Shaddah on the Nun): looked it up right now, but several different meanings. Example sentence (even with Latin letters)? And as for Maiwenn's answer about sweeper, a broom is a miknasah. Kannaas is definitely used for a sweeper or a similar meaning. But still, an example sentence could be useful.

كَنّاس is sweeper. It could also be a gazelle habitation, but I'd imagine 99% of the time it designates a sweeper.

Well, I didn't "argue" about كَنّاس usually being used for a sweeper. But maybe what I did write has been overlooked just a little bit.

Among the reasons for myself even mentioning that is: I do not know Monox's example sentence. And until I know it, there are two other remaining possibilities at least.
(1) The existence of a rather uncommon word (a.k.a. "ghariib", as al-lughawiyyuun, the linguists, call it) in the example sentence, which (if it exists) would be kinnaas or kunnaas.
(2) The example text being about kinaas (without a shaddah), because of the information "it is written with a shaddah" being Monox's understanding, rather than something that has been clearly written in that textbook. And if it is kinaas, one does need to take a closer look at the context.

This is just my way of asking about as much (language-related) information as possible in advance, trying to keep the number of replies and Replies-to-Replies as low as possible ;).

Looking at the image given in the book, it is definitely sweeper. I just didn't want to jump to conclusions too fast. Thank you for you two.
