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:
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.
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/.
Noun + /æm/.
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/.
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:
Now, replace with /keta:b/. You will say:
His/her/its book = /keta:bæsh/.
Noun + /e/ sound + /ma:n/
Noun + /e/ sound + /ta: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.
Salam! Khosh amadid! Thank God we have no questions for this wee ...
