Eastern Iranian languages | notes


  • ^1 Munji is a borrowing from Persian but Yidgha still uses los.
  • ^2 Ormuri marzā has a different etymological origin, but generally Ormuri [b] is preserved unchanged, e.g. *bastra- > bēš, Ormuri for "cord" (cf. Avestan band- "to tie").
  • ^3 Ossetic ærvad means "relative". The word for "brother" æfsymær is of a different etymological source.
