  • Kurdish - Urdu

    Salaam guys

    Hmm...this thread will be quite interesting, so be warned ;) :D

    I have heard that Kurdish is quite similar to Urdu, is this true? (i already knows its veryy similar to pashto and farsi but urdu i never knew)

    Inshallah there are some urdu speakers here to help me out!!
    Ok, i'll write some words down, tell me if its the same or similar in urdu!

    chair = kursi
    teer = arrow
    gosht = meat
    hawaa = wind
    salaamat = safety
    shooti= watermelon
    kleel= key
    mehwaan = guest
    qabar = grave
    mayz = table
    cumbar = blanket
    khoshi = happiness
    shad = happy
    baland = high
    kharaab = bad,
    ahsaan = easy
    Sharwal - traditional kurdish mens trousers

    Naturally, any Arabic/-based language will be similar to others within the group.

    You are right, alot of those words are used in Urdu.

    chair = kursi (same)
    teer = arrow (same)
    gosht = meat (same)
    hawaa = wind (same)
    salaamat = safety (same)
    shooti= watermelon (different, turbouse/turboos, I believe that is what it is)
    kleel= key (different, chaabi)
    mehwaan = guest (different, mehmaan)
    qabar = grave (same)
    mayz = table (same)
    cumbar = blanket (differnet, ghilaaf, chaader)
    khoshi = happiness (same)
    shad = happy (same, shaad)
    baland = high (different, bolund, bolundi [height])
    kharaab = bad, (same)
    ahsaan = easy (same)
    Sharwal - traditional kurdish mens trousers (different, shalwar)
    Gul - Flower (different, poohl)
    asmaan = sky, heaven (same)

    I'm pretty sure the only difference between Kurdish and Urdu, is grammar and some words here and there.

      wow thats alot of "sames". Kurdish and urdu is not arabic based though, their both indo-iranian languages, so their both more similar and sound more like farsi than arabic, because arabic is a semitic language.

        MM, not really. I know Arabic is a Semitic language. However, Urdu has borrowed alot from Arabic, which is why if I read the Quran, (I don't know enough Arabic), then I can understand pieces of what I'm reading. They are Arbic-based in that sense and because they use a similar alphabet.

                Urdu is a Turkish word. Urdu means army. The lang spoken by the Turkish armies (that captured India and ruled for many centuries) was called Urdu by the local Indians who interacted with them. That's why Urdu contains many Turkish words. some other Turkish words in urdu are "Ghulam , Intezam, Ikhtetam, ehtesham, inzemam" etc. The word "aam" means woman's boob in Turkish. The Turkish armymen gave this name to an Indian fruit (mango) because it resembled the shape.

                        Why dont the kurds & turks resolve their conflict and stop abusing each other ?? Two muslims fighting each other is not good. It is only benefiting the murdood kaafirs who are happy to see two muslims hating each other.


                        Do you agree ?
