It could come from Akkadian, Farsi/Kurdish, Turkish, or maybe Arabic.

as far as I know, "hayir" is part of the General Urmian dialect.

According to the online Sureth dictionary, which may either correct or wrong, Hayir is either Kurdish or Farsi origin which makes even more sense since Hayir is part of the General Urmian dialect, which has alot of contact with Persian and Kurdish people.

back on topic: Video is very nice but Linda should be endorsing a militaristic stance. When once is victimized and nobody stands to protect them, you gotta stand and protect yourself then.

OT: That's a cool site! I wish I could search terms in English though. I'm still not sure if both "hummam" and "ayikhyola" are foreign. I already know "humman" is from Turkish.

I think we need a little bit of both. Militarism for ourselves and sympathy from the West.
