F A R S I / Persian (IRAN), Part I



FARSI/Persian (Indo-European,  Iran)


1000s of borrowings from Arabic were not included. The point is those Farsi (and/or Arabic) words that are traceable

 to Edenic.

Key to romanized Hebrew Aleph-Bet:

Vowels in lower case. Root letters in Upper Case with [brackets] around unpronounced letters or non-historic ones in the

derivative language.  5 Hebrew letters have end-forms.


Aleph א = A or any Upper Case VOWEL, Betב  = B, Bhet = BH or (V),

Gimel  ג= G, Dalet = ד D,  Hey  ה= H, Vav  ו= V, OO or OA, Zayinז  = Z,   Het   ח= [K]H or  K[H], Tetט  = DT, Yod  י= Y,  Kahf כ,ך K, Khaf = KH, Lamed  ל= L, Memמ,ם = M, Noonנ ,ן = N, Samekh  ס= $,  Ayin  ע= bracketed UPPER CASE [VOWEL] or GH, Peyפ,ף  = P,

Phey = PH or F,  Zaddi  צ,ץ= TS (always read ST in European),

Koof  ק= Q,  Raish  ר= R or WR, Shin  ש= SH, Sin = S,  

Tahf   ת= T, TH, or (S)


Symbol Key:


<  is “ultimately from the Edenic word ___.”

The [bracketed] word at end of an entry indicates an English cognate, and what to look up for more info in the E-Word CD Dictionary. The bracketed word, CAPITALIZED, indicates an entry name to see. Entries provide Biblical citations and/or Semitic cognates as further source words, relevant roots and cognates from other languages.


S = letter shifts: [all vowels are interchangeable, no shifts needed]

S-B = bilabial shift [interchangeable lip letters: B, F, V, W],

S-F = fricative shift,[interchangeable whistling letters: Soft C,S,TS]

(Farsi ST is from Shin/SH, a fricative, not a dental) 

S-G = guttural shift [interchangeable throat letters: Hard C,G,K,Q]

S-D = dental shift [interchangeable tooth letters: D, T, TS]

S-L = liquid shift [interchangeable tongue letters: L,R]

S-N = nasal shift  [interchangeable nose letters: M,N]


N = nasalization (extra M or N inserted in the root).

M = metathesis (root letters switch places). Example: M132 means that merk (to mark) takes the 1st, 3rd, then 2nd root consonant (no vowels) of נכר, to recognize (shift from Noon/N to M) and   מכיר  MaKeeYR (acquaintance)

ß = reverse the (root letters of) the Edenic source word

B  = a borrowing from another language, usually Arabic (if not modern)

An unbolded part of the native word is nonhistoric, or unrelated to the

Edenic source word. An unbolded part of an Edenic word might mean that

 a prefix or suffix is not in the equation.


Entry Key:


1. English meaning, 2.  Farsi word  3. required shift (if any) or other Babel-babble effect 4. ultimate Edenic source

__5.meaning of the Edenic word in English

  6.  [X]  -- the E-Word Digital Dictionary entry to find cognates, Biblical citations, etc.            


  < = ultimately from.  (Especially culture-laden words used in Moslem Iran will come from Arabic. Modern Persian or Farsi is now spelled in Arabic. To check if a word is borrowed (B), consult a dictionary.)
