I think it should be "обращение", which means the way you address someone, Anrede in German. From the verb обращаться (к), to address (verbally) Bogorm 20:32, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Translation of English word to Farsi

Could someone please translate the word "beloved" into Farsi. Not the script. Something like "Good Morning" is "sobh bekheir" or "Good Night" is "shab bekheir". Thanks in advance.

Farsi: "mahboob."
IPA might help. Somthing like /ma.bub/ ? Mglovesfun (talk) 20:44, 21 September 2009 (UTC)



I kuʻu puʻuwai no nā kau ā kau. Literally, this says "in my heart for all seasons", where "for all seasons" is a metaphor for forever. If you want a more literal translation of "forever", try I kuʻu puʻuwai a mau loa. Kal (talk) 04:45, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Translate the English Words Love, Hope, Faith, Joy into Aramaic

My mom, sister and I all want to get an Aramaic tattoo, but we are having a hard time finding translations. It would be very helpful! Thanks!

Depending on the dialect/state/script you want, they would be:
I tried to get the most common words througout the dialects. Note that the pronunciations are phonological to get the general sense of what the word sounds like, not phonetic. A phonetic spelling of sabrā’, for example, might be savrā’, sawrā’, or even sawro’, all depending on dialect. --334a 23:39, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
If you have trouble viewing the Syriac script, you can use the font called "Code2000" which is available for free. —Stephen 16:31, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

english to arabic (yemen)

I need to translate "I missed you, my love" into Arabic in a Yemen dialect, if there is one. Thank you!

English to Aramaic

Please could someone help me translate the two phrases into modern Aramic: 'Gods own' 'belonging to God'

Also, it would be great to see the two phrases in Ancient Aramic, that is, as close to the language Jesus spoke as possible.


If you are so interested in the Aramaic background of Jesus, you can read the Peshitta, this is the Sacra Scriptura in the language spoken by him. As for the translation, I am a novice myself. Bogorm 15:25, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
They would probably both be d’alāhā’ (ܕܐܠܗܐ, literally "of God") in my modern Aramaic dialect (and in Syriac, the language of the Peshitta). Jesus of Nazareth would have spoken Judeo-Aramaic though (not Syriac), and I'm not quite sure if it's the same or not (see this article). --334a 14:33, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
