Kurdish fountain ?

PostAuthor: Piling » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:02 pm

Is there a Kurdish word for saying 'fountain' (sabîl in Arabic). Not 'source' (kanî) but fountain ?

we use kani for fountain, and for source we use çavkani (word by word : çav: eye, kani: fountain; çavkani:eye of the fountain)

I've heard something like "zambele ave" used but I feel like "zambele" is probably derived from the Arabic word.

A Kurdish dictionary I have lists another word, "qulteyn".

We use "Kahnî" for fountain and source too in Northern Kurdistan. and you can say for source "Serêkanîyê" ser-ê = head kanî is fountain...

This is the third time i'm saying this, kurdish is one of the richest languages in the world because there is no language with so many synonyms as kurdish.
