BÊT [Aug. 31st, 2008|09:57 pm]

Bezin bo şewêkîş bêt şwênî xoy xoş dekat.

The goat makes his place nice (comfortable) even if it’s for only one night.

This is a proverb (my husband used it when we went camping and he wanted to use the inflatable mattress and I was content to use a sleeping bag!)

As far as I can understand, bêt means "even if it is". This is a very difficult construction for me, so maybe I'll post a few more sentences with it in the future.

I'm not on my computer right now, so I'll post the sentence in arabic script next time.

Useful Links [Jul. 12th, 2008|12:56 pm]

You can download Thackston's complete grammar for Sorani Kurdish here. A Kurmanji grammar is also available. There are also a few resources for Kurdish over at Unilang.

This community appears to have been inactive for quite some time. Any interest in reviving it?

HAWÎN هاوین [Aug. 19th, 2006|12:47 am]


Oops! That was a long week... We're going again for a week next Friday, but I'll try to post regularly until then:

HAWÎN = summer

Pê xoşhałim hêşta HAWÎNe.


I'm glad it's still summer.

Note: In xoşhałim above, I can't find the right symbol for the h, but it should be the one that corresponds to  ح
