פּיראָג ‎(pirog) —Stephen (Talk) 12:50, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: Please remember that we use the full YIVO spelling for Yiddish terms here. Also, that's not quite an accurate translation; a pirog is not the same thing as the default meanings of pie in English. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 15:59, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
As far as I know, Romanophile’s translation requests are not intended for use on English Wiktionary. Concerning accuracy of translations of pie, it is problematic with many languages, because pie in the default sense is not traditional in most non-English-speaking countries. For Yiddish, I think there are various words for pie, depending on size, shape, ingredients, and texture, and sometimes also depending on the country where the Yiddish is spoken. Pie is a cultural dessert, and translations are seldom accurate. —Stephen (Talk) 23:20, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

No context provided, but I would prefer to put it like this: “There, there, my dear sir!” —Stephen (Talk) 09:04, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
I’m surprised that you interpreted it as an exclamation and not a question. It also seems that our entry for quoi is lacking your sense. --Romanophile (contributions) 09:38, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
quoi is one of the little function words. These little function words are complex and difficult to describe and define. Quoi offers a lot of different meanings, nuances, and so on. It can also mean (under certain circumstances): kind of, sort of, pretty much, you know what I mean, in short, in other words, reason, no more to say. I think I’ve said it before, the little function words present the greatest difficulty in learning any language. —Stephen (Talk) 21:29, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but I still think that it’s a worthwhile endeavour to present the complete picture of such basic terms, even if it’s time‐consuming or difficult. We can use one‐word definitions since they are technically correct, but they can also lead to accidents. In fact, for a long time we simply defined quoi with what, which is true but also misleading, since what is both a nominative and oblique pronoun, whereas quoi can only be used obliquely, so I added a ‘note’ in the one‐word definition. --Romanophile (contributions) 01:14, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
Well, it would take a lot of work to fully describe and define quoi. I doubt that I would do it even if I did French entries. Since I don’t do French, you might be able to talk someone into fleshing it out some more, but I don’t have a suggestion as to who would agree to do it. I don’t know of any dictionary that does that. It’s more of a job for a grammar book. If we did it, all of the little function words would go from being dictionary entries to being lengthy encyclopedic articles. —Stephen (Talk) 03:43, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
It is an elliptical usage of quoi in French. It is both an exclamation and a question. One can use either an exclamation mark or a question mark. Here, it is used to show an astonishment and to get an answer. One could explicitly states the sentence as follows: Quoi, [que dites vous mon] cher monsieur[, est-ce bien cela que vous pensez] ? See any French Dictionary (Le Petit Robert, Le Larousse) or quoi in Le Trésor de la langue française informatisé, section I. C. 2. --AldoSyrt (talk) 09:02, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

can someone translate to sanskrit[edit]

please help me translate the famous rumi quote, "out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field i'll meet you there" to sanskrit. i have attempted below. thank you.

बेयोन्द् इदेअस् ओफ़् रिघत दोइङ्ग् अन्द् व्रोन्ग दोइङ्ग् थेरे इस अ फ़िएल्द् इ विलल मीत योउ थेरे .

Just to let you know, what you wrote in the Devanagari alphabet is completely meaningless. It’s just transliterated English. What you wrote is this: “beyond ideas opha़् righata doiṅg and vronga doiṅg there isa a phaield i vilala mīta you there.” That’s English, not Sanskrit.
For example, “out beyond ideas” should be परतः विचारयोः ‎(parataḥ vicārayoḥ), not “beyond ideas”.
This sentence is complex and will take time to translate. I won’t have time to do it anytime soon. —Stephen (Talk) 11:03, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

@Stephen G. Brown --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 01:53, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Not to worry, Kolmiel. You can always look up a word that you feel unfamiliar with (the verb "to contract", in this case). --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 22:23, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip :D But I may not know which definition is the right one. And it's also the construction: an "offer to contract". It's strange for me as a non-native speaker of English. The only way to make sense of it was the gloss I gave above... Kolmiel (talk) 11:18, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Puzzle Museum - unidentified scripts[edit]

I was looking at this interesting Puzzle Museum site, where they need help in identifying some scripts. Can anyone work them out? The puzzle cigar case [2] looks like Arabic (it's upside-down in the picture!); and then there's this one [3], which reminds me of Canadian syllabics, but probably isn't (it says "made in England"). Equinox 04:24, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

For the second one, I agree that they do' look like stylized Canadian Syllabics. I know next to nothing about them, but I would love to know if you find anything out! —JohnC5 05:14, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
The other one is Persian. My Persian is not very good and I'm also not particularly good at reading calligraphy. Therefore I don't understand the words in the upper oval. Below it there's the number 1337, which is a year. However, the question is whether it is the religious Islamic year or the Persian Islamic year. I strongly suspect the latter. In that case it would be 1956, and the Tuman would be from 1954, not 1916. In the lower oval, if I read correctly, it says عمر مولا or something like that, which is also beyond me. (The former word could be the name Omar, but that's a very rare name in Iran, since Shiites hate the Caliph Omar. It could be a Sunni, though.) The only thing I'm pretty sure about is that the lower line says "Hamedan, Iran". -- But one of our Persian guys should be able to clarify all of this in a second. Kolmiel (talk) 21:57, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
Hmm... This is really interesting. I can't let it go. Now, the upper line might be a transcription of something English, namely Rainbow Offer or Rainbow Affair or something like that. We should really ask someone about this. Kolmiel (talk) 22:28, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it is in Persian script. The person on the coin is apparently Ahmad Shah Qajar, and note that the year 1335 on the coin is in lunar Hijri (AH; Islamic calendar, common in Muslim world) not Solar Hijri which is more common in Iran. The writing (with letter by letter transliteration) is as follows:

The star: (written upside down)

عمر مولا `mr mwl´

همدان ایران hmd´n ´yr´n

The coin:

۱۳۳۵ 1335

Bottom: (written upside down)

رین بوافس ryn bw´fs (there may be a space after w which is hard to recognize)

۱۳۳۷ 1337

Judging by the shape of the star, writing upside down may have been intentional. I couldn't understand the sense of last words, I tried to read it in various ways. It's not English, but maybe it's French? French was common among the educated people in Qajar Persia. The writing in the star is probably "Omar Mowla; Hamadan, Iran", Omar Mowla can be a name, but "Omar" is not a common given name in Iran at all (at least now). Also I think that's not a common way of writing ر (r) in Nastaliq, it looks like ل (l) to me, but the writing wouldn't make sense in that case. --Z 18:45, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much. Okay, so the year is lunar. I was mistaken about that. For the rest I was better than I'd thought. I'm glad :) So you read the last letter of the strange phrase as "sin". Okay. I had also thought about French, but that seems to be even stranger. You would rule out Rainbow? Kolmiel (talk) 19:47, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
It can't be Azerbaijani or some minority language, can it? I mean would it have been normal to write in such a language on a cigar box? Kolmiel (talk) 20:00, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's a common way of writing س (sin). I think Rainbow can be a possibility, at first thought, I would read the phrase as Rainbow Office. There has been a tendency for not using the letters waw, alif, and ya' for any short vowel in transliteration back then (in recent decades, as modern Persian phonology [of Iran] is going more and more toward a qualitative system rather than the older quantitative system, it's the opposite, so these letters are used more frequently in transliteration now). I don't know much Azeri, but it doesn't look like Azeri or other regional languages, it looks like a Western trade name or something (also consider Russian and German). --Z 08:15, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks again! So let's summarize the fruits of our efforts, chiefly Z's of course: 1.) The years 1335 (on the coin) and 1337 (on the box) are according to the lunar Islamic calendar, like the museum correctly said). 2.) The first oval says "Hamedan, Iran" and possibly the name "Omar Mowla", which latter is only a bit doubtful since it would not have been a very common name and the script is also somewhat strange. 3.) The other oval has a phrase in a non-Persian, probably western language (in transcription), which might possibly mean Rainbow Office (whatever sense that makes).

"victory" in Phoenician[edit]

  • What is the translation of the English noun "victory" (or its synonym, "triumph") in Phoenician? The closest that I could find from online English-Phoenician dictionaries is the Phoenician verb "𐤍𐤑𐤓"/"NṠR"/"naṡar" (written here left-to-right, as nun-tsade-resh), corresponding to the English verb "triumph."

    • I can only guess, unfortunately; but there may quite probably have been a noun with the same consonant spelling. Compare Arabic نصر, which is both a verb (naṣar) and a noun (naṣr). Kolmiel (talk) 18:40, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
    • My best guess would be 𐤍𐤑𐤇𐤍 ‎(nṣḥn), based on Hebrew נִצָּחוֹן. But with ancient languages, you just gotta go with what's attested. If there is no attested Phoenician word for "victory", then you're out of luck. --WikiTiki89 18:56, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
    • Those both sound like good assumptions. Hebrew is the closest-related living language to Phoenician, and according to Wikipedia, the only other official member of the Canaanite language family. However, the verbal form in Hebrew is nun-tsade-heth versus Phoenician's nun-tsade-resh (with the nominal form in Hebrew being nun-tsade-heth-waw-nun). A comparison with translations in Ugaritic (ISO 639-3 UGA) and Aramaic (ISO 639-3 ARC) of the broader Northwest Semitic family to see if they also use nun (𐎐) for nominal suffixes may be helpful if possible. I am not a professional linguist though, so I am mostly just theorizing ad hoc on what the noun might be. NicoleSharpRFS (talk) 01:32, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
    • PS: I do not know if Phoenician is supposed to be spelled left-to-right or right-to-left? Unlike Hebrew, I see primarily left-to-right spelling online, but the Wikipedia page for Phoenician script states that it is supposed to be spelled right-to-left. Or perhaps the script is boustrophedonic? NicoleSharpRFS (talk) 01:32, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
Phoenician was written from right to left. I don’t know what Phoenician you have seen that runs left to right, but that would be incorrect. If the page uses old Phoenician fonts (pre-Unicode), those fonts do not contain the technology that permits right-to-left, and they require treatment by a special program that automatically reverses the letters. The script direction in Unicode fonts is built into the font.

What do you call the direction to which hairs (or similar things) are inclined? Like when you stroke a cat, the hair will have a direction to which it is inclined. (The German word is Strich, I want to add a translation but I can't find it.) Thanks! Kolmiel (talk) 14:59, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

The nearest English concept I can think of is "with the fur", or "with the nap". --Catsidhe (verba, facta) 22:44, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks again. Seems good. The German word is also used chiefly in mit dem Strich ("with the fur") and gegen den Strich ("against the fur"), though it can sometimes be used more freely. Kolmiel (talk) 22:16, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Latin to English[edit]

"nullam rem e nihilo gigni divinitus umquam"

Word-for-word: "Not a thing from nothing is produced divinely ever."
I have no idea why the official translation dropped the divinitus (divinely).
--kc_kennylau (talk) 15:21, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
I suspect the above link is not the official translation. The Italian Wikipedia translates it as nulla mai si genera dal nulla per volere divino ("nothing ever is created out of nothing by divine will"). --kc_kennylau (talk) 15:23, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Polish to English.[edit]

I have a rough idea through google but could do with a decent translation .

Szefowi opowiedzialem history i niepomogly tez porobione zdjecia ze ja cpun i złodziej I ze go okradne

Maybe I can clean the spelling up a little for you:
Szefowi opowiedziałem historię i nie pomogły też przerobione zdjęcia że ja ćpun i złodziej i że go okradną.

Klingon and Sanskrit to English, from The Big Bang Theory[edit]

In TBBT, season 9, episode 8, a girl says:

"Chija”e’vlKub je. Or, as they say in Sanskrit, Ahm asman matey-bee ta-teyva."

Translate to English, please. Apparently she is saying the same thing in both languages, so any one is fine. Thank you. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 09:20, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

The Sanskrit is misspelled so that an American can pronounce it better. Ahm looks like अहम् ‎(aham, I, 1st-person pronoun), and asman must be अस्मान् ‎(asmān, us, accusative). But I can’t figure out matey-bee or ta-teyva. —Stephen (Talk) 11:39, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Thinking about this again, I think that ta-teyva might be तथैव ‎(tathaiva, likewise). I still can’t figure out matey-bee. So something like I [?] us also. —Stephen (Talk) 12:23, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Gloss to English 2[edit]

What are the closest terms for these?

  1. land lines that have not been ploughed. (from ხარვეზი)
  2. something or someone that is easy to deal with or mess with. (from ხელწამოსაკრავი) --Giorgi Eufshi (talk) 06:27, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
What is a "land line"? I have never heard of that. It sounds like a railroad.
As for the second one, adjectives for a person include reasonable, fair, level-headed. For a thing: simple, easy, no problem. —Stephen (Talk) 07:14, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
  1. I meant "the part of the land that has been ploughed so badly that it now has unplaughed parts". Those parts are probably linear that's why I described it as "land lines".
  2. Thank you. But they are not equivalent - a reasonable person is difficult to mess with but that is not true the other way round.--Dixtosa (talk) 12:15, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

It's a little hard to say it that way exactly. For “I only smile because of you”, you could do “solum tuī causā subrīdeō”. —JohnC5 19:20, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
@JohnC5: There's a difference between "you're my only reason to smile" and "I only smile because of you". The former means that s/he has nothing else to live for, while the latter means "only you can make me smile", in my opinion. I would translate it as " causa unica subrīsā meā (es)". --kc_kennylau (talk) 01:41, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

кущтанащ is the gift of some food that Bashkirs give their guests as they stand at the door preparing to go home. I will try to verify this meaning and spelling, just to be sure. —Stephen (Talk) 19:54, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

The Story of a Candy Rabbit[edit]

How would the English-language book-title The Story of a Candy Rabbit be translated into Dutch and a few other languages? I ask, because of Wikidata.

  • Danish:
  • Dutch:
  • German: The only current word in German is Schokohase ("chocolade hare"), which would make it: Die Geschichte von einem Schokohasen. A literal translation of "candy rabbit" would be Süßigkeitenkaninchen, but that sounds very awkward. Kolmiel (talk) 19:20, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
After having read the "hard sugar candy" comment below, I propose: Die Geschichte von einem Zuckerhasen. A bit made up, but sounds okay. Kolmiel (talk) 01:58, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Traditional Chinese: 故事 (?) —suzukaze (tc) 08:24, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
  • French: L’histoire d’un lapin au caramel (? ... never heard of a candy rabbit. There are many kinds of candy. —Stephen (Talk) 15:17, 3 June 2016 (UTC))
  • Russian: Сказка про шоколадного зайца (lit. Story about the chocolate rabbit)
  • Spanish: La historia de un conejo de caramelo (?)
  • Swedish: Historien om en godiskanin (?)

Feel free to add other languages like Hekaheka did, using a Finnish translation. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 08:19, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

I just want to comment that based on my quick glimpse at the beginning of the story, the rabbit in question seems to be hard sugar candy (not caramalized); it is described as having "pink glass eyes". So the question arises, how much artistic license do we have in these translations? --WikiTiki89 19:34, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

A menorah. --Romanophile (contributions) 19:45, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

مَنَارَة ‎(manāra) is the exact cognate of the Hebrew word and the word used in Arabic translations of the Bible. However, the Arabic Wikipedia calls it مينوراه ‎(mēnōrāh) and منوراه ‎(minōrāh), which are just transliterations of the Hebrew word. --WikiTiki89 20:29, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Second, the amount of material is far too large. You cannot expect me to translate such a large amount of material for free.
