Language Interests edit

I'm mostly interested in shared vocabulary between Arabic, Persian and all Turkic varieties, as such, I'm more interested in etymology than anything else.

My main languages/language families of interest are in order:

  • Ottoman Turkish (probably the most eloquent and versatile language, in my opinion) and by extension but to a significantly lesser degree, Turkish.
  • Arabic (only Standard Arabic and not the various vulgar dialects which I do not consider to be languages)
  • Persian (particularly Classical Persian)
  • Azerbaijani

Of less interest to me are:

  • Uyghur
  • Uzbek
  • North Semitic Languages, particularly Classical Syriac, Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic.
