struggling to understand future tense

I am looking through the given notes for the ‘future tense’ egyptian beginner’s section and it says that to convert a basic verb into a future tense to add ‘ha’ as a prefix. ‘Bokra’ (tomorrow) is given as an example of a future tense word but it doesn’t contain ‘ha’ and i’m a bit confused by when ‘ha’ applies. Is it in certain contexts? I find grammar so so hard :slight_smile:


Yes the “ha” prefix is applied to verbs for example
yerkab - to ride
ana harkab taxi bukra - I will ride a taxi tomorrow (common way to say it).

Bukra just means tomorrow and is informing us of what time the verb will be done in this sentence… The ha prefix is used for verbs and bukra is not a verb.

Hope it helps
