Hi, our teachers!.I hope you be in good healthy mood.

Some questions irritate my mind .Here are :
Someone is very much fond of Riyadh , of Abha of Jeddah and Al-Qasba. He is “a Riyadophil”,“an Abhophil” ,”Jeddophil”and”an Al-Qasbophil”
How correct and well-formed are these coined words ?
:oops:

accept my regards.

I'd use the 'phile'spelling, but both seem correct. I'd say those words are correctly formed. ;-)

Be a RonBeeophile. :wink:

If you want to make up a word for a person who loves things Arabic, you could, I suppose, call that person an arabophile. There is a word for a person who loves things English: anglophile. For a person who loves things American, we will, I suppose, have to make one up. Perhaps: amerophile.
