Korouni dialect

PostAuthor: unitedkurdistan » Sun Jul 15, 2012 11:55 am

The Korouni dialect (Kurdish: کرونی), is a Northwestern Iranian language in Fars and Kurdistan. Koruni is a Kurdish tribe of Kurdistan and Fars. Most of the tribe was transplanted from Kurdistan to Fars by Karim Khan Zand during the 1760s.

The speakers of Korouni live in scattered pockets in Southern Iranian Fars province around Shiraz, Sepidan and Kazerun. The succeeding information is about the dialect spoken around the latter two cities.

Vowelsshort: â, a, e, i, o, u
long: ā, ē, ō
Consonants
fricative: ð, like in, 'peðar' (father).
voiced velar fricative: γ, like in 'tiγ' (thorn).
alveolar trill: like in 'borra' (flail).
palatal: 'g' and 'k', like in 'gilas' (cherry) and 'goruk' (hank of yarn) for 'k'.

The suffix "-aka" makes nouns definite. Examples:
čerâγ (lamp) → čerâγ-aka (the lamp)

The indefinite marker is "i". Example:
melâl (child) → melâl-i (a child)

The plural is marked by the suffix "-al" . Examples:
sif (apple) → sif-al-aka (the apples)
orsi (shoe) → orsi-y-al-aka (the shoes) ('y' is used if noun ends in vowel)
