THE inquest into the death of missing Sydney toddler Rahma El-Dennaoui could run until the end of the week.

Language barriers and the use of an interpreter have caused lengthy delays throughout the proceeding which began two weeks ago.

Family members, police and neighbours have given evidence in the Glebe Coroner's Court about the events leading up to Rahma's disappearance.

The 19-month-old has not been seen since she was snatched from her bed in Liverpool home on November 10, 2005.

Her father Hosayn, who placed her in bed about 2am, broke down in court last week as the court played the 000 call made on the day Rahma went missing.

Counsel assisting the Coroner Robert Bromwich had questioned why Mr El-Dennaoui had reacted so strongly in the court room but had appeared "calm" on the phone.

This week, Rahma's aunt said Mr El-Dennaoui had been crying when he found Rahma missing but family members had told him to calm down so he could speak clearly with police.

The inquest will continue on Thursday.
