Hello =  /sæla:m/.

 

Welcome =  /khosh a:mædid/.

Last week we learned how to say ‘my friend’ in Persian. Today, we are going to learn some more.

Let’s see how we can say the followings:

  • My friend
  • Your friend
  • His/her friend
  • Its friend
  • Our friend
  • Your friend
  • Their friend

Wow! Seems a Herculean job! Isn’t it?

Don’t worry! I am here to simplify the rules for you!

We already know how to say ‘my friend’. This makes our job much easier today. Let’s try it again.

My friend =  /du:stæm/.

We added  to the noun, which is  /du:st/. And we know that we should pronounce  as /æm/ in most cases.

All right. Our problem is almost over.

Now I want to say ‘your friend’. I replace /æm/ sound with /æt/sound. I will say  /du:stæt/.

So,

My friend =  /du:stæm/.

Noun + /æm/.

Your friend =  /du:stæt/.

Noun + /æt/.

Note: for ‘your + noun’, like what you see above, the rule changes a bit in oral conversation. In this case, we might replace /æt/ sound with /et/ in some words. However, to avoid any confusion, just learn the rules that are applicable in written speech and forget the oral conversation at this stage.

His/her/its friend =  /du:stæsh/.

Noun + /æsh/.

Our friend =  /du:stema:n/.

Noun +  /ma:n/.

Your friend =  /du:steta:n/.

Noun +  /ta:n/.

Their friend =  /du:stesha:n/.

Noun +  /sha:n/.

Note: as you have noticed, in the case of plural pronouns, we combine the above items with nouns with /e/ sound. Like .

 + /e/ sound + /ma:n/. Is that clear? Wonderful!

This is all we have to add to a noun:

 /æm/.

 /æt/.

 /æsh/.

 /ma:n/.

 /ta:n/.

 /sha:n/.

Now, replace  with  /keta:b/. You will say:

My book =  /keta:bæm/.

Your book =  /keta:bæt/.

His/her/its book =  /keta:bæsh/.

Our book =  /keta:bema:n/.

Noun + /e/ sound + /ma:n/

Your book =  /keta:beta:n/.

Noun + /e/ sound + /ta:n/

Their book =  /keta:besha:n/.

Noun + /e/ sound + /sha:n/

Now it’s your turn to try.

Ok. With this, we come to the end of lesson 16. I hope you enjoyed it.

See you next week.

Bye bye!  /Khoda: ha:fez/.
