Salaam to all,

I noticed the difference in Egyptian language they pronounce the "J" sound to a "gah" sound. For example- "Jameela"--they say "gameela" Why is that?

^ yep. mostly south yemenis. No matter the variations of dialects, it seems most the vocabulary are exteremly similar throughout the Arab world.

Mashallah, Arabic is a pretty language..not just because I'm arab, it's because it has a variety of poetic verses that are so beautiful. Just last week I was trying to teach my teacher to say assalaam aliakum and mashallah he said it soo beautifully.

The egyptians say gameela instead of jameela because it is their dialect.
This is a lahja, dialect. I am not arabic but I understand a little bit arabic, but I have some difficulties to understand the masri , egyptian dialect.

You think that in Egyptian language they pronounce the "J" sound to a "gah" sound.

and I tell you that is not completely true!!!

actually the "J" sound in "Jameela"- is used by millions in Egypt outside the capital (Cairo) , it is a common sound in the areas of agriculture in Egypt and in south of Egypt too....

another fact is that in a big area of south of Egypt they use the sound (D) instead of (G) or (J)
for example:
they say (Dameel) instead of (Jameel) !!!!

in sum If we talk about which sound is accurate it would be (J) not (G) ,as there is no sound (G) in the Quran....it is always (J) and to be more accurate it is pronuonced (dj) like
