Because iranic languages changed systemtically the PIE "G/K" to "z/ch/c "(later to "j" as in Kurdish) and the PIE "L" to "R".

Some examples:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer_D ... do#k_.2F_g

This are only a few examples. This change you can see in hundred of words.

The examples of me are from linguistic etymology books.

this process of "k" > ch"
g -> c

changing is in the linguistic calling "palatizing".

as example the word

"roj" in kurdish

comes from avesta: reoch- (balochi still: roch, zazaki: roc)

this avesta "reoch" was using for "light". parthian changes the "ch" to "j" and made the form rôj, middle persian rôz.

and in russian it is using "loch".

this all forms comes from PIE (proto indoeuropean): leuk (from where also "light" comes)

another examples for L -> R:

PIE: wlkows
Avesta: verke
zazaki: verg
will be in middle persian to: gurg, in new persian to : gorg (look about the v -> b/g changing here: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer_D ... do/Neu#new)
englisch: wolf*

*germanic langauges change generally PIE k -> also to "f". as in PIE penke > german: fünf (english: five). and the p -> f changing is again a germanic fature, compare germanic languages with latin, you can detect then nearly more then 300 examples for this change.

this are all linguistic facts.

You can also look to here:

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?sea ... hmode=none

Pers. dirang, Skt. dirghah, Gk. dolikhos


You see the old Persian form "dirang",

here you can see an directly nearness to

Proto-Indoeuropean form: dlonghos

In relation with english "long".

and isn't "jinni" the word for demon :shock: < Dont get "shocked"! You know nothing of Kurdish language, as you cannot read it's Latin script. It's pronounced (in English letters) as "zhyn" though your mentioned word is pronounced "jenni". It's exactly an Iranificated Arabic word from Arabic "jinn"/"jenn" ~ "mare/devil". :)

I like the word bra for brother. I have a nice bra. :lol: < why not? In Kurdish we got "birader/bira" ~ etymologically equal to English "brother/bro"


I'm glad ure interested in Linguistics, what's ur mother tongue? let me guess, is not it Assyrian?! It's cool, do you have any similarities with European Languages?! What about Arabic?! Does your language exactly share same roots with Arabic?! Unfortunately another Assyrian guy just told me "Arabic is a dirty language"!! :shock: An Assyrian must not talk so!! You know what I mean?! :? :lol:
