SAD ( صاد ) is the 14th letter of the Arabic alphabet. It was derived from the Phoenician Sade and thus related to the ( no longer used ) San Greek and the Hebrew Tzade. In the Latin alphabet there is no direct equivalent. He is assigned the value 90.
Phonetic value and inscription
The Sad is one of the four so-called emphatic sounds and has no equivalent in English. The place of articulation is the same as the Sin ( = voiceless "s" ), the vocal tract will be raised slightly stretched and the back of the tongue to the palate. In the DMG Sad transcription is played with a punctured S (s ). In the non-scientific transcription is mostly "s" used, with the distinction of Sin lost.
The Sad is a sun letter, ie a preceding al - ( definite article ) is assimilated.
