The word كادر is a common word that is used in the Arabic language to describe a team of people to deliver a certain job. Before today, i would have sworn my life that it is a word of Arabic origin. Today i have received from a customer a request for a quotation. Within the document i came across the following
RealSoft shall p0rovide a capable technical cadre to be on call to correct any breakdowns ...
Not that i am a linguistic wiz, but it was the first time that i read this usage. Wikipedia came to the rescue with the following
"Cadre (from the French; pronounced /ˈkɑːdreɪ/) are the backbone of an organization, usually a political organization ..... The term is also commonly used in other venues to indicate an "original" or "leadership" group, i.e. the "first set" of users of a system who then will act as the seed-group who gain initial experience with a system, in order to facilitate its later use by a more general population"
Amazing!, i added a new easy work to my English vocabulary
