This article deals with the term of tathniyah/muthannā in Arabic language. Arabic nouns have, like verbs, three numbers, the singular, dual, and plural. The dual is commonly employed in Arabic to signify two individuals of a class. The dual form is special to the Semitic languages. However, it is more excellent in Arabic than in the others. For this reason, knowledge of the subject is very important in the studies of Arabic language.
