Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide to Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome!

աւազ[edit]

Hello, Irman. Mazanderani وازیک (vâzik, sand) is a very interesting possible cognate. What is your source for it? --Vahag (talk) 22:38, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

I know a little Mazanderani, but for source you can see here [1](Irman (talk) 11:33, 6 January 2014 (UTC))
I want to advise Hrach Martirosyan, a linguist, about the existence of this word. Maybe he will need to cite it. Do you know if وازیک (vâzik, sand) is mentioned in some academic source? A book, article, dictionary? It doesn't matter, if such source is unavailable online. --Vahag (talk) 13:13, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't know about published sources.(Irman (talk) 13:34, 6 January 2014 (UTC))

Martirosyan says thanks. By the way, please consider adding a Babel box to your user page. --Vahag (talk) 14:55, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

tāg[edit]

Hi. What is your source for this edit? All the sources I have say Middle Iranian *tāg “crown” is unattested. We only have Manichaean Middle Persian (not Parthian) tʾg “arch” (not “crown”). --Vahag (talk) 23:08, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

My source was from compound word "xārtāg" means "crown of thorns" in Dictionary Of Manichean Middle Persian & Parthian.(Irman (talk) 16:05, 16 January 2014 (UTC))
It is a very interesting finding, thank you. Seems that Armenologists do not know about that attestation. But still, the source doesn't say the Persian word was borrowed from Parthian. Parthian is not the ancestor of Persian, so unless there is evidence to the contrary a borrowing should not be presumed. Do you mind if I change "from Parthian..." to "compare Parhtian..."? The same for کلان and نزم. By the way, you can use the {{R:xpr:DMMPP}} template now. --Vahag (talk) 18:24, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
I completely agree with you and thank you for template.(Irman (talk) 09:04, 18 January 2014 (UTC))

رخ[edit]

سلام، واژهٔ lhw' که در اینجا ذکر کرده‌اید از چه منبعی است؟ من هرچه می‌گردم پیدا نمی‌کنم. در فارسی میانه به رخ شطرنج mādayār می‌گفتند، و طبق چیزی که من قبلاً در منابع خوانده بودم «رخ» از سانسکریت است. --Z 08:16, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

از پیوست دیکشنری مکنزی "ADDENDA ET CORRIGENDA".(Irman (talk) 16:16, 16 January 2014 (UTC))

Sources[edit]

Hi, I'd like to know the sources for the etymology of لاش (lâš) if possible. A link if it's from a site, or the impressum if it's from a book. Thanks in advance.

پچین[edit]

Hi. Did you use some source in linking پچین (pačin) with Sanskrit पादचिह्न (pādacihna)? My sources take it to Old Iranian *pati-čagnaka- without mentioning the Sanskrit word. --Vahag (talk) 20:38, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi! In answer to your question I have to say that I found it from a sanskrit dictionary on the web. maybe I made a mistake, but there is another word in Parthian "pādmuhr" wich seems to me to be a translation of the Sanskrit.(Irman (talk) 06:16, 8 December 2014 (UTC))
The similarity must be accidental. I have now expanded the etymology with references. --Vahag (talk) 17:01, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

‎نخبه‌گرا[edit]

Hi, would you like to expand the short page for the term ‎نخبه‌گرا? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 15:39, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Also expand اشکانیان (which I found at Short Pages, as found in the Community Portal), if you can and have the time. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 15:53, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
And کارورزی --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 16:10, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
And بنیان‌گذار --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 16:29, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
What would you like to know more about those words? they all have clear meaning.(Irman (talk) 16:54, 17 December 2014 (UTC))
You could apply the plural and the Tajik Cyrillic counterpart spelling (if applicable), if you can. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 16:56, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
What;s the transliteration of ترک ترک? Could you also examine the transliteration of تقو? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 10:50, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
There is no word ترک ترک in persian as I know, but it seems to be an afghan colloquialism. تقو has wrong dictation. the correct form is تقوی similar to arabic.(Irman (talk) 15:32, 18 December 2014 (UTC))

خاده[edit]

Hello, why have you removed the context label? Surely it is either archaic or obsolete? Kaixinguo (talk) 16:32, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Because if you label such a word as obsolete or archaic you would do this on almost 80% of persian vocabulary. Persian is not a first language of most of people in Iran, Afghanistan and less in Tajikstan, so people used to speak with small vocabulary in everyday conversation through history. but educated people could understand them, if not they couldn't understand classical texts. I tried to explain it, sorry my english is not good.(Irman (talk) 19:31, 18 December 2014 (UTC))
All right, I think I understand. Your English is good :) Kaixinguo (talk) 11:15, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Persian terms needing transliteration[edit]

I came across the term اولویت at Short Pages; if the term is real, what's the transliteration? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 18:05, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

P.S. Here's the category. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 18:07, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
