    I posted some Persian words on Yahoo Questions before asking what the words meant and how they can be used, in what contexts and such and somebody kindly answered and explained. May I share the list and perhaps we could discuss them about their exact meanings and how they can be used as i think these words are used frequently.

    Thanks Pinky

    Here they are:


    haye
    hamin
    vaght
    injori
    kasi
    tarike
    hali
    akhar
    avaz
    aval

    Now I asked about these questions because I'd here them quite alot and this is the explanation I got:


    paye
    -It can mean "table leg" if it comes with 'miz' > paye-ye miz : table leg (miz:table)
    - or it can mean base,rank,grade,basis

    Can paye mean anything else except this? I know that leg is 'Paa' but I thought that maybe 'Paye' could be something else and Paaye instead of legs. And I would like to ask, because it is 'Paaye' does that mean it's legs and 'Paa' on it's own would just be 'Leg?
    --------------------
    haye
    - "ha" is plural suffix .and "ye" or "e" is for relating one word to another so you can read it better
    > book:ketab , books:ketabha ,green book:ketabe sabz (ketab sabz is not correct so you say ketabE to read it) green books : ketabhaye sabz ( 'e' changes to 'ye' becuas "a" is vocal ketabhA,so after a vocal it changes to 'ye' )
    ---------------
    hamin
    -It can mean "just this"
    > do you want something else too?no just this
    > chize digei ham mikahyn? na,faghat hamin/na hamin

    Could you also say 'Haminjoori' for this and it would mean the same as Hamin? Or could 'Haminjoori' mean 'Just like this' or something? (Just taking a guess here) Or does it mean something completely different?
    ------------------
    vaght
    time
    > at what time? che vaghti? (but at what time can be translated as "when" in Farsi,when its "vaghti")
    > time is gold : vaght talast

    This can mean 'When' and 'Time' ? For example: 'Vaghti nisti' - When you're not here' / 'Inhame vaght - 'All this time'
    --------------------------
    injori
    like this,like this way
    > dont take picture like this :injuri ax nagir

    Is 'Intori the same as 'Injoori'? Is 'Intori' formal and 'Injoori' informal?
    -----------------
    kasi
    anybody
    >anybody home? : kasi khune hast?

    This may sound like a silly question (hehe) but for example if I say 'Nobody' 'Hichkasi' ? (I think) is there any difference if we say 'Hichkas' without the i, would that make the word somewhat different, to noone perhaps? :X

    tarike
    >tarik : dark
    >tarike = tarik ast : It is dark
    in otagh tarike/in otagh tarik ast : this room is dark
    mostly "tarike" (thus way of talking) is used for speaking not for writing.
    ------------
    hali
    hmm this one is hard to say! (hal or hali)
    > che hali dad vaghti in kar ro kardim : doing that was cool/fun

    Is hal different to hali? As before I have heard someone say something like 'Kheyli hal kardam' which I am not sure of the meaning really: Kheyli:Very, Hal:??, Kardam:I did(?)
    ----------------------
    akhar
    last

    An example: Akharin bar (last time)?? or without the 'in' at the end??
    -----------------------
    avaz
    change
    you changed : to avaz shodi
    I want to change this dress : mikham in lebas ro avaz konam
    ---------------------
    aval
    first
    ------------------
    daghighan
    exactly
    >this is exactly what i was looking for : in daghighan hamun chizi hastesh ke donbalesh migashtam


    Could we say: 'Shoma daghigham koja zendegi mikonid' - 'Where exactly do you live' ??
    -------------------------
    kenar
    by/beside
    > i was standing beside/by a wall : kenare ye divar istade boodam
    -------------------
    hezar
    1000,thousand
    ----------------------
    bezar
    let (its command verb)
    >let me do this : bezar man in kar ro bokonam
    --------------------
    mirese (miresad)
    it reaches.. the meaning change based on the text..it usually comes with another word that makes its meaning complete
    > this house is for sale : in khane be forush miresad

    Could we have further explanation on this word?
    -------------------------

    Hi my friend, let me explain them to you one by one.

    About "Paye" (better to write it in this way "pyeh"):

    Those two concepts are definitely right. In informal speaking, we use pyeh for having desire for doing some thing for example:

    Pyeh raftan be cinema hasti? Are you in the mood for going to the movies? or Do you like to go to the movies?

    -------------------------
    Pyeh does not mean "P + hyeh", actually it means something like the leg or leg-like.

    Considering "P" -> "P+yeh Man" = My leg
    -> "P+hayeh Man" = My two legs or My two feet

    No, you can't use "Haminjoori" in this situation. As you mentioned, "haminjoori" means "just like this" or "in this way".

    You're right, but let me illustrate it for you.
    "At what time', "what time" or "when" have the same meaning in Persian, if they come at the beginning of the sentence => "Che Vaght(i)?", "Che Zaman(i)" or in informal speaking "Key".

    When "when" comes at the middle of a sentence or as a conjunction, then its meaning changes to "vaghti", "zamini", "lahzeyi",... .

    Its usage however is similar to its usage in English.

    What's the meaning of mikoonid? It means "You (plural) do", it can also be used as a formal form referring to "You" in a singular form. (This regulation is so common in European languages, esp. in French)

    What time is it now? -> Formal: "Sat chand ast?"
    Informal: "Sat chandeh?"

    I learn Parsi from my teacher -> Formal: "Man Farsi r az moallem (moozegr) e khod mimoozam."
    Informal: "Man Farsi ro az moallemam yd migiram."

    Really? Merciiii Pinky jan shoma lotf dariii <3 (I hope that this is appropriate that I reply this way for your compliment) I am going to try harder to learn more

    I remember the days when I was first introduced to Persian and I only knew things such as 'Salam' 'Chetori' 'Merci' 'Khoobi' in which I used to pronounce as 'Hoobi' hehe

    Your language really interests me, the sayings,quotes,expressions everything!

    I know a lady who used to work for some of the Persian royalty, she lived in Iran and used to teach a Royal son English and she is very fluent in speaking and writing Persian, she has a Persian husband and they're children speak Persian fluently also. Gosh I would just be so happy to be able to form my own sentances let alone reading and writing Persian! that would just be amazing

    Thanks for all the threads, all of the translations on lyrics etc really help me have a better understanding

    When I want to know the meaning of a persian text I use the google translator (its more fast and practical than asking someone). The translator also transform farsi words written in latin letters into persian script:
    http://translate.google.com

    This is a good dictionary to find out the definition of a persian word:
    http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/hayyim/

    This is a good website to check the correct pronunciation of a persian word (they have audio recordings):
    http://www.forvo.com/

    Hi my friend, thank you for the websites. I should add something here, usually online or better to say mechanical translators are only good for words. They can not translate the sentences or text in a correct way. Specifically, Google translator would translate your text in a very strange way, almost incorrect.

    But the other two websites are very useful and practical. Thank you so much.
