I think this is so neat! Didn't we have something like this on the previous forum?

Janjer - to withstand, usually hardship.

Example: Atourayeh junjooroon (plural form) ju pramtit Semele.

Moothootheewit? - How are you?

I think that's what Baznayeh use instead of "Dakheewit?" or "Dakheewat?" because my Baznayeh relatives use it a lot.

Does anyone know how to say "park" in Assyrian? Like, "let's take a walk in the park" or something?

There are many words for 'park': 'marge', 'charmaneh' (mostly used by Assyrians of Iran).

pashkash= 'present'

"bayen yawenoukh kha pashkash qa etha sora"-- I want to give you a present for christmas

b qraya- 'to study

"ana sqidlee min qaryana"-- i'm bored of studying
(is bored the correct term for sqidlee or is it annoyed?)

I think this is Persian or Turkish.

Generally speaking, if a noun does not end in an "allap" it likely is not Assyrian (although this rule is not hard and fast).  If a word ends in "gh" "j" or "sh" or "ch", it is likely Turkish, Kurdish, or Persian.

Not that I KNOW the Assyrian word for "gift"...

Here is an interesting list from http://www.aina.org/articles/akkadianwords.html.

I have bolded some interesting ones.  Please  note the words and how they have changed - From Akkadian to Assyrian - th eletter "b" has been replaced with "waw", although when they are spelled modern day, they retain the "beet" (like "book" = "Ktawa" is actually written Cap, Taw, Beet, Allap).  Otherwise, notice nouns end in "Allap" or "U" in Akkadian.  You can also see why Western Assyrian is more correct in pronouncing some of their words.

la nasha! OMG Dlty01! seriously u rock azizta!! ive always wanted some exposure to akkadian! wow, so many words that are almost identical. yes u can see the pattern, in how the langauges are different. "b used for our w", "h, sometimes used instead of kh", and of course "u instead of our a at the end of the word"

thanks so much. keep it coming.

:bigarmhug:
No problem khon.  I love seeing the relationship to Akkadian.  Reinforces my identity to those Assyrians of old  :shades:

Younan said:
ok, lets try a test...? :giggle:? (i can offer assyrios for each word thats correct! lol....hmm i dont even know how many i have lol)

1. tdalya (6alya )? 6=the letter teth (after kheth)? [if you know this, can you give me the other name for the pair?]

2. igarta

3. sharakta

4. 3ee'raa (3=the letter aih (after simkath) )

5. mim'raa

6. matla

7. mom'kin

8. sapooyeh (has 2 quite opposite meanings!)

9. p'khama

10. 3iltaa (2 meanings)

and for the bonus prize:

pith'ghama


:yourock: kulokhon

Did I miss the answers to these words??? I will just write what I know :)

1.If the first word is Talya = a young boy the feminine for it is Taleeta. Plural = Talyeh.

2. Igarta=letter

3. Sharakta= participation

4. I don't know the meaning isn't it the same word used in a part of the Liturgy? if I'm not mistaken.

5. mimr'aa = don't know.

6. matla=a short story which has a lesson to draw from.

7. momkin= possible.

8. sapooyeh = it can mean to deliver some one (sapooyeh kha barnasha) and the second meaning seems to be the sapooyeh = as in sappa (sapooneh) or also if it is like a "sadeh" means to filter something (sapooyeh rizza).

9. p'khama = In the accent of the Assyrians from Mazra and Tkhooma the word means to remember.

10. 3iltaa = Reason, but I don't know what the other meaning is.

11. pith'ghama = I would like to know what this word means perhaps it has another equivalent.
