January 2009Edit


In Irish Gaelic there are several words for power:
brí indicates strength or force.
neart is more indicative of corporeal strength.
cumhacht means power in a general sense and can also be used for "electrical power".
In Scots Gaelic we have:
lùths meaning strength.
spionnadh is similar in meaning.
cumhachd, like cumhacht, is the general word for power.

Surname SuffixesEdit

I am looking for some information regarding surnames suffixes. I am researching "Lazarucz", a Hungarian family surname from Transylvania, Romania; specifically, Mezoband (now Band), near Tirgu Mures. I am wondering if the "ucz" is a suffix on the name "Lazar" or "Lazaru". This was my great grandmothers name. I have seen Lazar as a first name as well as a surname. What can you tell me about this? Thank you for your help.

Hawaiian: Is there a phrase in Hawaiian that means "you're welcome" or "no problem" (as in response to "mahalo")?

translate name for tatoo "UTSAV"Edit

hey i need to know how the name "UTSAV" is spelled in japanese, russian, chinese, hebrew, arabic, latin, korean

—This unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 23:22, 22 January 2009.

"UTSAV" translate this name in japanese, chinese, latin, arabic, hebrew,

zack 02/01/06

Nobody can tranlate it unless they know what it is or what it means. What is it, an abbreviation of some sort? —Stephen 12:09, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

UTSAV means a happy occasions, i just want the word to be pronounced the same way in other languages, please do the needful


So you want it to be pronounced like that in each language? Most of the languages cannot have exactly that pronunciation. This is the closest I can do:
Japanese: ウツァヴ (utsavu)
Arabic: أوتساف (utsaf)
Latin: UTSAV
Chinese: 烏擦夫 (wūtsāfū) (somebody else can probably do it better in Chinese) —This unsigned comment was added by Stephen G. Brown (talkcontribs).
Russian: уцав (vide infra !). Bogorm 10:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
This word is evidently identical to Sanskrit उत्सव (utsava, jour de fête; joi, bonheur) in the Sanskrit-French dictionary, which I use. It comes from उड् (upwards) + सव (incitation, instigator). If so, if ts is not pronounced as one consonant, then probably Russian ц is inappropriate - in this case only the corresponding spelling would be утсав. Bogorm 10:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

"Do Not Die Wondering"

Either simple or traditional

Sounds like a personal request. Try posting on this forum: They will translate it for free. You can then create an entry here later if you wish.

I'm thinking 不要死不瞑目 might work. It literally means, "Don't die with your eyes not closed." In other words, if your eyes are open when you die, that means that you still have things that you wanted to accomplish, before you died. 死不瞑目 is an idiom in Chinese. -- A-cai 14:21, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Moroccan (arabic translation) French?Edit

I am writing a children's book that takes place in Marrakech, Morocco and I am looking fro the vernacular translation for:

"My mother" "My home" "My grandmother" "My father"

Thank you!

  • I'm no expert, but having lived in Morocco I would say ‘walīdatī’ for ‘my mother’ (spelling is difficult, since the vernacular is hardly ever written, but probably وليدتي). For ‘my father’ I'd say ‘walīdī’ (وليدي). ‘My grandmother’ — ‘zheddatī’ (جدتي). I'm not sure which word they would use for ‘home’ in Morocco. Ƿidsiþ 23:24, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Moroccan Arabic is not my language either, but I would have thought امي (ummi) for ‘my mother’, داري (dari) for ‘my home’, and بوي (bui) for ‘my father’. I agree with جدتي (zheddatī) for ‘my grandmother’. But if he’s looking for French as used in Morocco, that’s another story. —Stephen 17:32, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
Let me correct the Arabic version Widsith has provided: it's والدتي (wālidati) - my mother and والدي (wālidati) - my father, with the long "a", not "i". The other way to say "my father" is أبي (abi) and "my mother" as Stephen said, امي (ummi). The same spelling أبي may be pronounced as "abuyya" in Eastern Arabic. Not sure, which dialect is بوي (bui). :) --Atitarev 22:05, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm well aware that it's والد and والدة in standard Aranic, but in Morocco they pronounce it with a long "i". Although they may still spell it in the normal way I suppose. Ƿidsiþ 09:33, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
I did not about the Moroccan way. Aren't they shortening everything instead? Thanks for the insight. --Anatoli 09:44, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

how to write malhalo in arabicEdit

how to write malhalo hawaii aloha in arabic kufic

First, surely you mean mahalo. Second, these three words appear to be unconnected, that is, they don’t make a sentence that right? Third, I assume you want the Hawaiian words themselves written in Arabic, and not just the translations of the Hawaiian words. And fourth, kufic is a particular family of Arabic typefaces. You would have to copy the Arabic from here into a program such as Word, WordPad, or Notepad, and then change the font to a Kufi font (which you must have installed on your computer). —Stephen 08:07, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
mahalo = ماهالو
Hawaii = هاواي
aloha = ألوها
An additional transcription of "Hawaii" (retaining the ʻokina) into Arabic might be:
Another thing to keep in mind is that none of the Hawaiian terms mentioned here makes use of nā leokani kō (long vowels). Therefore it is possible (and perhaps preferable) to transcribe the three Hawaiian words into Arabic (with pointing) thus:
هَوَئِئِ (employing the first hamza only to avoid: a) a diphthong "ay" and b) a glide "y")
These are merely suggestions I thought I'd share.—Strabismus 21:10, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
But when transliterating foreign words, Arabic is not applied as an abjad, but as a true alphabet. That is, alif, waw and yaa’ are used for the vowels, regardless of length. Arabic script is an abjad only when used to write Arabic. —Stephen 17:32, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
In practice, yes. But compare also the variant spellings of words in Hebrew depending on whether or not pointing is used. At any rate, I was merely representing the Hawaiian words phonetically in Arabic script, WITH respect to vowel length. Just alternate renderings. Not criticizing your transcriptions. :)—Strabismus 22:24, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

What is ramen in Hawai'in?!? answer below:

Just a note: lameno is a literal "Hawaiianization" of the word "ramen", and isn't in any Hawaiian dictionary yet. If you want other words to consider, nulu is the word for noodle, and kaimine is the word for saimin, another popular noodle dish in Hawaiʻi. Kal (talk) 04:54, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Better yet, why not nulu huki(huki)? Literally "pulled noodle(s)", this would be a calque on the original Chinese (suggested) meaning of "ramen": 拉麺 (lāmiàn). Just a thought.—Strabismus 05:02, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

The link is not useful, amongst the translations there is no Japanese (for the first meaning), Amharic, Punjabi, Sanskrit and Thai. In the history of the page there are no IP edits which means that the page is probably semi-protected. Whilst that has some advantages, it deprives the users with the respective background, who are too indolent to register, of the possibility to expand the table. Alas, we cannot leave a message before the table unregistered users can add translations to the talk page and after verification they will be inserted. Bogorm 21:35, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Japanese: 畜生! more commonly written in Hiragana: ちくしょう! pronounced chikushō!
  • Chinese: 他媽的! (traditional) 他妈的! (simplified) (tāmāde!)
  • Russian: блядь! (bljad'!), пиздец! (pizdéts!), ёб твою мать! (job tvojú mat'!)

None of these means literally "fuck". --Anatoli 00:09, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually ёб does mean fuck, or more precisely "I fucked". The infinitive would be ебать (ʸebátʹ). Блядь can mean "whore". And пиздеть means literally "to cunt".
Actually there are verbs пизде́ть/жу (pizdéť), which means "to tell lies" and пи́здить (pízdiť), which means "to steal". Anonymous, 10:31 23 February 2009
True. But the general meaning of пизда is “cunt”, wouldn't you concur?—Strabismus 20:56, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Chinese (cào) has semantic leaning towards "fuck".
Japanese 畜生 essentially means "brute" or "beast". Japanese is not as forthright as other languages are when it comes to profanity (especially when dropping the f-bomb). However, the word やる can be used to mean "fuck" or "do" (as in, "I'd do her.").—Strabismus 20:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Translating my name to other languagesEdit

Please can anyone translate my name which is Gary into Ancient Greek and Thai?

First of all, do you want the equivalent of Gary in these languages or a transliteration (i.e., how to spell them in the native writing systems)?
The name "Gary", as you may already know, means essentially "spear".
If you want the orthographic representations of this name then perhaps the following will suffice:
Ancient Greek: Γάρη
Thai: แกรี
As far as equivalents of "Gary" go, I'm not sure there are any in the given languages. At any rate, there you have it.—Strabismus 23:59, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Gary in Modern Greek is Γκάρι, so I would expect the Ancient Greek to be Γάρι. —Stephen 01:55, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Usually in transcriptions of Western names. I used the eta to symbolize the open "y" at the end—that is, if "Gary" is being pronounced /ˈɡæɹi(ː)/ and not /ˈɡæɹɪ/. Of course, there's no real equivalent in Modern Standard Greek to the vowel /æ/ as in "cat". Either way, both are fine. But I would use the eta for the "y" [i] at the end.—Strabismus 02:14, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
But in Ancient Greek, Γάρη is pronounced /ˈga.rɛː/, and it looks like a feminine name. The closest you can get to Gary in Ancient Greek is Γάρι. —Stephen 07:43, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
It depends on the dialect. At any rate, I've presented my suggestion and it's now up to Gary to choose for himself. (I just hope this isn't another one of those tattoo decisions!)—Strabismus 20:50, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Gary, you haven't asked for these languages but I want to add, anyway. Perhaps, you might be interested. In Russian, there is no consistent way to render /æ/, so we use Cyrillic "а", "э"/"е" (e in "pen"). So "Harry" is Гарри /garri/, seldom Харри /xarri/ but "Gary" is Гэри /geri/ just to make them different.
There's also Гәри (Gæri) as would be used in some Turkic phonetic representations.—Strabismus 21:00, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • In Chinese, most common is perhaps 加里 (jiālǐ) (which also means "potassium") but can be as different as 蓋瑞 / 盖瑞 /gàiruì/.
  • Your name doesn't have a good meaning in Japanese because 下痢 (げり, geri), pardon me, means "diarrhoea", so your name is transliterated either as ゲイリー or ゲーリー (geirī or gērī). I hope you won't be upset about it. Well, my name in Japanese sounds like "hole" and "bird" - + , although I spell it アナトリー in Japanese.
Another Japanese Katakana transcription of "Gary" could be ゲイリ.—Strabismus 21:00, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
The length is often optional in the transliteration into Japanese katakana. My name is usually spelled アナトリー but can be アナトーリー, アナトーリ or アナトリ. --Anatoli 22:53, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • No consistency in Arabic, either: غاري is the most common, the first letter غ stands for /ɣ/ (ġ), not /g/ but Egyptians will write جاري, which other Arabs may misread as "Jary". Egyptians themselves may get confused when to read ج as /g/ or /dʒ/ (foreign words only, in Egyptian Arabic, it's always /g/).
Some Arabic dialects pronounce ق as /ɡ/. Also there's Persian گری (with the separate letter to represent [ɡ]).—Strabismus 21:00, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that's right. Although, ق and گ are seldom used in Arabic for transliterating foreign words.
That's true. At least for the qāf. The gof [گ], however, is used in Persian for transcribing the sound /ɡ/ in loanwords (cf., گلف “golf”).—Strabismus 22:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, Persian, not Arabic. --Anatoli 22:53, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Oh, of course. I was referring to my suggested Persian spelling of the name "Gary" four comments ago. (“Some Arabic{…}. Also there's Persian{…}”)—Strabismus 23:31, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Just my 2 cents.

if your name mean spear, it is palaso in tagalog,or palasong

Translating Anatoli to other languagesEdit

I see people like translating their names into other scripts. I spell my Russian name Анатолий as Anatoli (the other variant is Anatoly). Can someone transliterate my name into Hindi, Gujarati, Thai, Khmer, Bengali, Hebrew and some other scripts (modern, not ancient), please?

  • French: Anatole
  • Polish, German: Anatol

I already have:

  • Анатолий (Russian)
  • أناتولي (Arabic)
  • 阿纳托利 (Chinese Mandarin)
  • アナトリー (Japanese)
  • 아나톨리 (Korean)
  • Ανατολή (Greek)

--Anatoli 22:53, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Armenian: Անատոլի (Anatoli)
Bengali: অনতোলী (anatolī)
Cherokee: ᎠᎾᏙᎵ (anatoli)
Canadian syllabics: ᐊᓇᑐᓖ (anatolii)
Gujarati: અનતોલી (anatolī)
Hebrew: אַנַטוֹלִי ('anatōlī)

German/South Slavic to EnglishEdit

Recently I discussed with Ivan_Štambuk how to render the South-Slavic word prasrodstvo to English and although he came up with some suggestions, we are in a cul-de-sac. This word is essential for etymological sections and is often used by South Slavic linguists. The full German æquivalent is Urverwandtschaft, so please someone translate it to English, if there is an appropriate word for that or at least check Ivan's suggestions. Bogorm 11:12, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

For Urverwandtschaft I have seen "primitive affinity" or "primitive cognation". —Stephen 17:05, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I shall make use of the second term when I find an entry, where mine edits will not undergo reversion. When I tried to add the primitive cognate with cf., this was reverted as unnecessary to be mentioned, even though Petar Skok reckoned it essential to be listed. Bogorm 17:27, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
The præposition is with, is not it? German: Urverwandtschaft mit->primitive cognation with? Bogorm 17:29, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, with. —Stephen 18:26, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

drink, alcoholic beverageEdit

Does anyone know the Amsterdam word, sounds like piketanisi, which means drink or alcoholic beverage? I'd like to know how it is spelled exactly. Mallerd 13:10, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Could it perhaps be something like pikant anijsie (seasoned anise)? Anise is often used in liquors and usually has a strong taste. Just a thought.—Strabismus 21:25, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I've also asked some Amsterdam people, they told me it's: pikketanissie. For example. Can't find the etymology, though. Mallerd 19:22, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Arabic: skiing تزحلقEdit

What's the pronunciation of تزحلق? (just the vowels will do). Does it mean skiing or winter sports in general?

تَزَحْلُق /tazaħlʊq/. It basically means "sliding" but is frequently used to mean skiing.—Strabismus 01:56, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

A variety of phrasesEdit

I saw a blog titled How to Learn (But Not Master) Any Language in 1 Hour (Plus: A Favor) [1] and it suggests to have someone translate the following phrases for you to learn a bit about the language and then decide if it's worth your while to study it. (For the record, I am skeptical that one hour will be anywhere near enough.) I thought I knew just the place to ask for this kind of thing: Wiktionary! The phrases are:

  • The apple is red.
  • It is John’s apple.
  • I give John the apple.
  • We give him the apple.
  • He gives it to John.
  • She gives it to him.
  • I must give it to him.
  • I want to give it to her.

And I'm going to add some of my own:

  • He doesn't give it to John
  • We don't give it to him

I know French already, so I'll translate to demonstrate:

  • La pomme est rouge
  • C'est la pomme de John (or Jean)
  • Je donne la pomme à John
  • Nous lui donnons la pomme
  • Il la donne à John (assuming that 'it' means 'the apple')
  • Elle la lui donne
  • Je dois la lui donner
  • Je veux la lui donner
  • Il ne la donne pas à John
  • Nous ne la lui donnons pas

See the blog for what we can infer from this. Internoob 00:55, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I share your skepticism. The given phrases are assuming that all cultures/languages have a word for “apple”, “red”, and “John”. Now, red is a VERY common color among almost all cultures, but still it oughtn't be the words included that matter as much as the syntax of the examples. Also, I too am eager to see what other Wiktionarians think.—Strabismus 02:06, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
That's right. It's used to examine the syntax and grammar of the language with respect to pronouns, noun cases, negation, conjugation, etc. to determine how easy it is to learn these features. These shouldn't by any means be the only criteria to determine how easy a language is to learn, but I'm still curious. Internoob 02:34, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
As am I. Learing a language takes alot more than one hour. However, that shouldn't discourage anybody. You CAN still learn some good things within an hour. It also depends on one's feelings towards the language in question. If you're being forced to take it in school as a prerequisite for graduating you may or may not like the language; so getting ideas to stick in your memory might be difficult. Whereas, if you're learning by your own choice, chances are there's something about the language that caught your eye/ear in the first place and you've probably already memorized THAT. So, again, it depends. The moral being: learn by HEART, not by ROTE.—Strabismus 04:00, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

how's the name DEVA spelled and pronounced in chinese and other languages,pleas do the needful.


I'll give you some I have interest in and some skills in. More than one spelling is possible, you can pronounce almost as in English.
  • Chinese: 德瓦 (Déwǎ) - I found this but other variants are possible (rising tone, falling-rising tone)
  • Russian: Дэва, Дева (Deva) - the former is more appropriate, the latter has also a meaning: Virgo, lass, virgin or girl
  • Japanese: デワ, デヴァ, デーヴァ, ディーバ - (Dewa, Deva, Dēva, Dība) - Japanese often replace /v/ with /b/ or /w/
  • Arabic: ديڤا, ديفا - (Dīva, Dīfa) - Arabs often replace /v/ with /f/.

In most European, Roman based languages the name spelling doesn't change.

Chinese: 天界 (tiān.jiè) [i.e., the "Deva" of Buddhism]
Sanskrit: देव (deva)
Considering phonetic renderings of the name Deva as pronounced 1) /ˈ and/or 2) /ˈ we have:
Armenian: 1) Դէվա; 2) Դիվա
Cherokee: 1) ᏕᏩ; 2) ᏗᏩ
Coptic: 1) Template:Copt; 2) Template:Copt
Cree: 1) Template:Cans; 2) Template:Cans
Georgian: 1) დევა; 2) დივა
Greek: 1) Ντέβα; 2) Ντήβα
Han-gul: 1) 데와; 2) 디와
Vietnamese: 1) Đê-Va; 2) Đi-Va
Strabismus 22:07, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

If this is Deva of Buddhism, then Japanese would be 天部 (てんぶ, tenbu), Russian: Дэва Anatoli 22:22, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I only included it to show the native Chinese version of one of the many individuals named Deva.—Strabismus 01:53, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Translate "love kills" to greekEdit

Hi! Does anyone know how to translate love kills into greek? and how to pronounce it also! I would appreciate it soo much cuz its for a tattoo i really want Thanks!!

Did you want modern Greek? Η αγάπη καταστρέφει. NB—This is a figurative sense and NOT a literal translation as would be suggested by "Love murders." An approximate pronunciation would be /hi a.ˈɣa.pi ka.ta.ˈstɾɛ.ɸɪ/—Strabismus 22:15, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

IPA for Arabic vowelsEdit

What are exactly the Arabic standard vowels and what's their standard IPA, if this can be said about Arabic at all (MSA). In particular, I am interested in fatha, whether the correct symbols are /ɑ(ː)/ and /æ(ː)/, e.g. قلب /qɑlb/ - "heart" and كلب /kælb/ - "dog". Other candidates are /ɛ̈/, /ɐ/. Is there an online source for it? Anatoli 02:55, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

If you have an iPod or other similar device, and have an interest in standard Arabic, you ought to check out ArabicPod. It's very fun and EXTREMELY helpful. It's hosted by Mohamed Moshaya and the teacher is one Ehab Saleh. Ehab's pronunciations are outstanding, to say the very least! His renderings are very centralized; e.g., قلب will be pronounced as /qʌlb/, غرفة (room) as /ˈɣʊɾ.fə/, ليش (why) as /lëːʃ/ (and not /lai̯ʃ/), etc. If you are familiar with transcribing what you listen to using the IPA, you should be able to pick up ALOT of good tips from Ehab. Check it out! :)—Strabismus 04:03, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Strabismus. I am actually familiar with ArabicPod but I stopped using it when they introduced subscriptions, I saved a number of transcripts before the site a paid one. I agree his accent is great. No, I can't convert sounds to IPA easily but I am searching for an online source describing the Arabic phonology in a more or less standard IPA. Yes, I am very interested in MSA but not spending too much time on it right now, as I am busy with Mandarin and Japanese but sometimes spend whole evenings, reading and listening to new texts. Anatoli 04:14, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
You can still get the episodes for free via iTunes or any other podcatcher. Or are you concerned with getting the pdf transcriptions as well? If so, I am too, but the strange thing is that I have never even seen the pdf transcriptions; even though I've heard about them (via their mentionings on the podcasts). I can kind of pick up on the subtleties through listening, but I too would like to "see" what I am hearing. At any rate, have you looked at the WP article on Arabic phonology? It deals mostly with MSA. There's also a pdf you can download on Arabic phonology. And if you're curious, there's a discussion on three areas of Arabic phonology. Google books has a few limited previews on this topic as well; e.g., this. Enjoy and good luck!—Strabismus 22:03, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Strabismus, although listening resources are useful, I already have some. I can tell, which sounds are pronounced but I'd like something supported by reliable sources. For example, I can't say with 100% certainty how much of vowel reduction exists in Arabic. So, is مدينة pronounced /mæˈdiːnɐ/, /məˈdiːnɐ/ or /mæˈdiːnæ/? To me, the first is correct but if I decide that this is one or the other, this will be an "original research".
I will try the books from the google search and the other link, thanks again. Anatoli 22:17, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
You are very welcome.—Strabismus 01:07, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
I wonder if someone can help with a complete list of consonants, which affect the choice between the choice between [æ] and [ɑ] (pronunciation of fatha). What are the other consonants, apart from /ħ ʕ tˤ dˤ ðˤ sˤ/, which cause [ɑ]? I think /ɣ/ should be included (e.g. غداً). What about /x/ (e.g. خمسة)? Not so sure about /r/. Anatoli 02:59, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
The emphatic consonants almost always alter the following vowel. Same goes with the pharyngeals ح and ع, sometimes غ and occasionally خ. These may vary from dialect to dialect but the important thing to remember is that consonants pronounced with emphasis or tension often make it difficult for the muscles of the throat and tongue to return to their normal position in time before the following vowel is articulated.—Strabismus 20:21, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, Strabismus. Do you think there are any exceptions to the rule about the 4 letters you mentioned?

Not all languages like to use the same parts of speech to get an idea across. In this case, Spanish prefers nouns to imperative verbs. In Spanish, this will be: reducción, reutilización y reciclaje. —Stephen 00:50, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Assuming that we're using the first person plural imperative form, which would most likely be the case, it's:

Recycle: recyclons !

REDUCE (in the infinitive form) = ermässigen REUSE (in the infinitive form) = wieder verwenden RECYCLE (in the infinitive form) = wieder verwerten

It turned out to be ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ (/sorry, I am unable to type it after the Estrangelo/ 9:9 Evangelium of ܡܬܝ ), but I have no idea what the bold ܗ stands for... I shall summon 334a to umpire. See also google results The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 20:06, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, ברא דאלהא sounds right, in addition to my original suggestion. But not בר דאלהא. ‎ברא is "the son/child", whereas בר is "the son/child of". If you use the latter, you don't use ד־. I think.—msh210 20:18, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Still no google results for "ܒܪ ܐܠܗܐ". But it may be due to the Targum not having been digitalised... (at least in Estrangelo, which I can read). The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 20:22, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Hm, maybe what you're seeing, Bogorm, is בְּרֵהּ דאלהא, with a double possessive à la "אתתיה דרבי יוסי" or the like.—msh210 18:40, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Bogorm, would you do me a huge favor? Could you translate

Sorry for the delayed response: it's because I can't really help you and was hoping someone else could (and then I forgot about this request). I can help with part of it. The original, "Let my ruins become the ground you build upon", sounds somewhat poetic to me, so I've tried translating this into a similar register. "Let my ruins become" is then תִּהְיֶנָה חׇרְבוֹתַי.—msh210 19:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. Are you using the jussive? i.e., "let such-and-such happen" Also, "the ground you build upon" could probably be rendered in other ways; e.g., "a foundation for you", etc.—Strabismus 20:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

English to Tamil TranslationEdit

Hello! I would love to have some help translating my half Tamil son's name (Tyler William-Zaraja) into Tamil. I am aware that his name has letters that are not in the Tamil alphabet. I just want him to know what it would look like in his father's native language¹. thanks

டைலர் வில்லியம்-ஸரஜ ("Zaraja" could be written in other ways, I don’t know that name). —Stephen 02:03, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
¹Then why not ask the father how it's written? Also, Zaraja is the name of a place in Yemen, is this perhaps where the boy receives his name? Another spelling would be ஸராஜ.—Strabismus 20:05, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Because his father died. thanks for the translation Stephen. It is appreciated.

I am sorry to hear that! How did your son receive his name? Is it related to Zarājah in Yemen? Or is it from a Dravidian source?—Strabismus 20:21, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Actually it is based on Suraj, but my family name is Zarate so in absolute american style i combined them. Not usual, but it means alot to us. And I have a few Yemenite friends who do appreciate the name. Thank you again for the translations. ;)

phrase from english into arabic neededEdit

Hi i am wanting to get a phrase "live the life you love, love the life you live" tattooed in arabic, can anyone translate this into arabic script?

Do you really want such a contradictory statement tattooed? On one hand it implies that if you are not living the life you love, you should change it (live the life you love). On the other hand it says you don't have to change your life, only love it. Mallerd 09:36, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
But in English it sounds good, irrespective of meaning. Part of the reason is the alliteration, so it may not be as good in other languages. Since this is for a permanent tattoo, be sure that you verify this with at least 2 or 3 native speakers before you use it. It can probably be improved on.

"What the fuck does it matter to you?" - A stronger translation would be
  • "Тебя это ебёт?" (tebyá éto yebyót?) (Does it bother you? (literally: fuck you?)). The usage is similar to English "What the fuck does it matter to you?" Russian ебать can be used in sentences of type "I don't give a fuck" - "Меня не ебёт" (Menyá ne yebyót), but also: "Мне по хую" (Mne pó khuyu).
  • "Какого хуя тебе до этого?". (kakóvo khúya tebé do étovo?) (what dick is it to you?). Russian хуй (khooy) (dick, cock) is used as "fuck" in such cases. Anatoli 04:46, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Can you please translate " Journey of truth" in several types of kufic script. I wanted to get a tatoo and have heard that some types of kufic script are very elegant.

Thanks so much!

I would say: الرحلة في معرفة الحقيقة. However, since it’s a permanent tatoo, you should verify it with a native speaker or two. As for the kufic script, that’s a typeface. You have to copy the Arabic to a word processor such as Word or Notepad and change the font to Kufic. You will have to search for the Kufic font that you like and install it on your computer first. Kufic is a monumental script, meaning that it is designed to be carved into stone monuments. You might prefer a nice Diwani, which is elegant and very beautiful. —Stephen 19:19, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Can someone translate the word heathen into aramaic.

Thank You


If the command of "walk with me" is to a single person, then you would use "ambula mecum". Saying"good night" is more difficult. The literal translation "bona nox" means that the night is a good one; it does not mean that the person is leaving, as it would in English. To say "goodbye" in Latin, use "vale". To say "God bless", you could say (literally) "may you be blessed by God", which in Latin is "benedicire Deo". --EncycloPetey 16:26, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
"Good night" usually means "I wish upon you that you have[subjunctive] a good night", I think. Can that be translated into Latin?—msh210 02:27, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

There is nothing obscure in the sentence, this is Evangelium secundum Ioannem, the famous 14:6, ego sum via et veritas et vita (I am not quoting in English, because it is not one of the three sacred languages of Christianity as established by pope Nicholas I) and the person wants it translated in Hebrew.

Ua ola loko i ke aloha.

If anyone knows the TRUE translation of this (to english) let me know! thanks!

It means "Love gives life within." It means that love is necessary to your physical, spiritual and emotional welfare. It is a bit difficult to analyze without studying the language, but literally, it says: "inceptively life interior to the love". Adjectives follow nouns (as in Spanish), and "ua" is a perfective/inceptive aspect marker that signals completed actions or new situations. —Stephen 19:04, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Can u translate the english paragraph below to TamilEdit

You may have difficulty accepting love or intimacy without strings, or are tired of faking it or being exploited. Looking in the mirror and reassess the value and power you place in sex, beauty or compliance. You have much more to offer in a relationship. This habitual process of distancing yourself emotionally could be a defensive mechanism to keep from being abandoned or rejected by love again. There might not be any happiness or future in this solitary illusion or passionless situation. Take the opportunity to finally give voice to the tidal wave of hurt -- then get back out there. Start over and follow your heart. Once you meet your own emotional needs and find self-acceptance through self-forgiveness, you can let go of the past and let love in.

死の沼 (shi no numa) = marsh(es) of death. The English "death field marshes" doesn’t sound right to me. I think "death swamp" or "swamp of death" both sound fine, but not "field swamp" or "field marsh". —Stephen 18:29, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Looks about right. in Vsetci ste vyjebany kokoti, ste = are, vyjebany is a past passive participle of vyjebati (cf. вы-ебать). Among other words, by seems to be бы, do = до, and je = is (like есть). Nemame = we have no (see не, mít, mieć). I would guess that the language portrayed is close to Czech. —Stephen 04:22, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Nemame (немаме) is we have no in the Western Bulgarian dialects (aka E-dialects). It is not used in written Bulgarian (where the correct form is нямаме), but is widely understood.

The correct translation is not "you're the one that holds my heart." It is a play on the person's surname of Kazez. The Japanese word for "wind" is "kaze", which is written with the kanji: . Add a "z" to the end, and you get "風z". -- A-cai 13:51, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Stuff I heard on Naruto and need translated... plz help! thx!Edit

Hi! here's some stuff I heard on Naruto and was able to link to the subtitles. If anything is wrong, plz tell me and let me know the real translation.

I only used my ears, so I'll type how I heard it, just to give you an idea.

Ossandadoh (doh as in Homer Simpson's doh! and da as in dice) - old man / old timer ? i know its pejorative though, I figured that much.

おっさんだどー, ossan dadō ― that is/this is/I'm a middle-aged man (with a rural or crude accent).

Sassandene - dodgy looking, rustic. the context is that they were looking at a sort of ghost town and they commented that i looked a little sassandene lol

すさんでる, susanderu ― desolate (land, place, etc.)

Shawshee - Photograph ? (写真, shashin, photograph)

Satetoh - very well, as in oh well i guess this is where u die, that was the context where i heard it lol xD

さてと, sateto ― well, now (same as さて sate [2])

Meeteh (eh like the sound ai in air) - look, as in Look! over there! (見て, mite, look)

Mareemeeteh (Ma as in mine) - look around you (just guessing: まわりを見て, mawari o mite, look around you.)

komeenossai (ai as in pie) - (I'm) sorry (ごめんなさい, gomen nasai, I’m is very, very hard to figure out your spellings...these few were all I could guess. —Stephen 10:31, 22 June 2009 (UTC))

achassoh (the A's as in pie again and the oh like Homer's doh! yet again) - you don't say... / interesting... the guy said it in a sneaky way.

I hope my explanations are useful in this translation, if not I'm sorry for not making myself clear enough, but it's difficult to explain the context of these things sometimes. Thanks to whoever decides to help me! :D

translate You and no other in to arobic,hebrew and persianEdit

im wanting to get a tattoo of You and no other and was wondering if tyou could please if you can help with the translation in to arabic hebrew and persion please thanks

In Arabic I would write لك وليس غيرها. Since it's a permanent tattoo, you should verify it with a native speaker or two before applying it. —Stephen 22:52, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
In Hebrew, רק אתה if the referent of "you" is male (or masculine, if a thing) and רק את if female (feminine), both assuming no context or that the referent of "you" is the subject of a sentence or the like. If the referent of "you" is an object then רק אותך (masculine or feminine). In all cases, Stephen's caveat about Arabic applies here, too.msh210 17:13, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

english to tamil paragraph translationEdit

Abnormal/Irregular Bleeding

A normal menstrual period lasts from 2 to 7 days. The normal cycle patterns can range from 21 to 35 days. When bleeding occurs that is not part of the regular cycle; periods are longer or heavier than normal; occurs between periods; time between periods is longer than normal; or there is an absence of periods, this is called abnormal or irregular uterine bleeding. There are various causes of abnormal bleeding, but the most common is a hormone imbalance. At both ends of the menstrual life of a woman, periods may be irregular. Reasons for abnormal periods can be both normal and abnormal. The most normal reason is pregnancy. Hormone imbalance (not enough or too much of certain hormones) can also be a common reason. This can occur as a result of weight loss or gain; heavy exercise; stress; illness; or certain medications. The most common result of a hormone imbalance is loss of ovulation. If this occurs over a long period of time, a condition called endometrial hyperplasia can occur. Endometrial hyperplasia is the result of constant estrogen bombardment of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus shed every month with your period). Untreated, endometrial hyperplasia (when the lining of the uterus becomes too thick) can sometimes turn into cancer. There are many reasons for abnormal/irregular periods. The chart below will list the most common reasons, their cause, other symptoms that may occur, diagnostic methods and treatment options. Remember, this is not a replacement for the advice of your care giver, but rather information to help you become aware of your body.

Irregular/Abnormal Bleeding CONDITION CAUSE OTHER SYMPTOMS DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT OPTIONS Polycystic ovary disease (syndrome) No ovulation Irregular bleeding, irregular periods, infertility, acne , excessive hair growth Made with examination and lab tests to check hormone levels Birth control pills, progesterone supplementation every three months; infertility drugs when pregnancy desired Pregnancy Can be normal; as a result of miscarriage or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy May have right or left lower abdominal pain; cramping Pregnancy test, sonogram If normal – observe; miscarriage may need a D&C; ectopic is a medical emergency and needs IMMEDIATE Surgery Infections of the uterus or cervix Some Sexually transmitted diseases Pain with period, foul smelling discharge, greenish to green-yellow discharge Exam, cultures, other specific blood test Appropriate for the STD IUD Irritation of the lining of the uterus. The uterus can’t stop bleeding after a period Cramping, heavy clotting If periods were normal before the IUD was placed, you may need to have it removed. If they return to normal after removal, the IUD was the cause Remove the IUD Birth Control Pills Missed pills, newly starting the pill, improper hormone mixture for YOUR body Brown staining to bright red bleeding in the middle of the cycle; heavy to no periods Missed pills are obvious; your doctor can make the diagnosis based on the description of what your periods are like compared to before starting the pill Wait for 2-3 months after starting a new pill; change pills Uterine fibroids Growths of smooth muscle non-cancerous tumors in the uterine muscle. These are more common in black women, but are not uncommon in white women. They are very uncommon in Oriental women Heavy periods, bleeding between cycles, problems with kidneys, increasing abdominal girth, pressure feelings in the lower abdomen, infertility Exam, sonogram, possibly MRI Dependant on the size and symptoms a myomectomy, rather than a hysterectomy, can be done.

I am not a fluent Hindi speaker, I only know a bit. I am fluent in Punjabi though.

"Koi _____ nai hega zindagi da vich"

It literally translates "Have no regrets in life".

can u write 'no regrets' in punjabi

I don't think there is a direct translation for the word 'regrets' but if you do find it out put it in the space and that will be the translation of it. Also because of the way of the Punjabi language works the direct translation will be "Have no regrets" as it won't make any sense if you use "no regrets". Hope I've helped, let me know if you need any more Punjabi translation, I am fluent in English, Punjabi and German and speak an ok-ish amount of Hindi and Urdu.

Literally, краповый берет means crimson beret, but I do not think that we would not call a special-forces unit that. More likely is maroon beret, but even that does not seem to be a standardized name in English for the краповый берет. Mayby "krapovy berets" is a better translation. —Stephen 00:23, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Could anyone translate "Beautiful Mistake" into Aramaic for me ?


My grandma had a tatoo on her forearm that read, "I BELONG TO JESUS". I wanted to get the same in her memory but in aramaic possibly esterangelo script. But I wanted JESUS spelt as YESHI, as His closest followers fondly refered to Him so. Could anyone please help me. I would be very thankful. Thanks a lot again in advance.

To render Domini nomen into Aramaic is straightforward - it is ܝܫܘܥ , but it is transliterated as Yeshūaʕ, not Yeshi. For the rest you will need a native (or non-native, but advanced) speaker. The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 09:46, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Hawaiian to English Translation of Ho`ola Ka Haku and proper appearance for a nameEdit

PLEEEEEEEEEEASE would someone translate Ho`ola Ka Haku, any and all meanings, literal and simple. and also if this is given to someone as a second middle name how should it have been given properly and how should it appear properly on a birth certificate, as 3 words or 1 longer word? thank you! it's for my son and i just want to make sure everything is proper. i sincerely thank you :)

hoʻolā ka haku — sun the master; sun, the one who is master.
hoʻōla ka haku — life the master; life, the one who is master.
hoʻōla ka haku — salvation the lord; savior the lord; save the lord. —Stephen 05:30, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank You Stephen :)

but i'm confused now, isn't ho`ola healing and haku lord? so The Lord Heals is not correct? >_<

anyone?...anyone?...bueller?...bueller?... no seriously, help? thank you!

ka means the, or the one who. haku means lord, master, overseer, employer, owner, possessor, proprietor. hoʻōla means to save, to heal, to cure, to spare; also, it means salvation, healer, or savior. So yes, the phrase could be translated as "the Lord heals" or "the Lord saves". —Stephen 14:05, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the translation is most likely hoʻōla ka Haku, meaning "the Lord heals/saves" or "the Lord gives life". I'm pretty sure that the prefix "hoʻo-" (seen here as contracted with the word "ola", meaning life) is a causative. Kal (talk) 03:55, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Thank You to the both of you! Sincerely <3

could you translate "fuck you" as close as possible in sanskrit, if poss.

Having a tattoo with "fuck you" written in sanskrit is highly offensive and disrespectful and i would not recommend it. Having lived in the likes of Thailand, Burma and India, where sanskrit is prominetly used, many Buddhists would take offence to having a disrespectful phrase in sanskrit. I recommend getting it in another language, maybe Hindi??? Sanskrit and Hindi do look seemingly similiar.

oo ok, i didn't really think about that just part of my tatoo is already in sanskrit and i wanted it to match! could you do it in hindi for me then?

It's for a tattoo, though some other ideas i had were:

1) "carpe diem" = "תפוס את היום" or "אכול ושתו כי מחר נמות" or "קרפה דיאם"...since it's Latin we can just use transliteration into Hebrew characters of the same phrase
2) "strength" = "כוח" or "עוצמה"
3) "only God can judge me" = "יש אלוקים בשמים" means "there is God in the sky"
4) I don't understand what notw it means

mögel German>EnglishEdit

What does "mögel" mean? It's German, and I'm pretty sure it's slang (maybe for "mögen" or "mag" or something?) CMEHalverson 16:38, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

In Swedish, mögel means mold. I have not heard that word in German. German has mogeln (to cheat at cards), and Mogelei (cheating). Also, of course, möglich. Maybe someone else will know of German Mögel. —Stephen 17:36, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, but it definitely does not mean mold. It's not a noun. Here's an example of usage: "mögel die in Erfüllung gehen" CMEHalverson 19:03, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Could this be a typo - Möbel (furniture), not mögel? Nouns are always capitalised in German. The sentence will then make sense. Mögel doesn't exist in modern German but there is such a surname. --Anatoli 22:35, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
It's a complete sentence, not a subordinate clause, so Möbel wouldn't make sense (nor would any noun), because in that case "gehen" would have to be analyzed as finite, and a finite verb cannot appear clause-final to the displacement of other constituent phrases ("in Erfüllung") in the main clause. My interpretation is that "mögel" is acting as the finite verb, and "gehen" is infinitive. I'm thinking it's along the lines of a slang gloss for "Mögen sie in Erfüllung gehen" cf. English "May they be fulfilled". Also, compare the south German diminutive suffix -le (mög-el). Comments? Native speakers? CMEHalverson 21:51, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

The translation for "No Regrets" from English to Hawaiian

please translate 2 frenchEdit

It's impossible to lose the one you love, love lives in your heart.

I would probably say Il est impossible de perdre celle qu'on aime; l'amour vive dans le cœur. But I'm not a native speaker. Ƿidsiþ 10:03, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, except that it's l'amour vit dans le cœur. But I would rather say; l'amour reste vivant dans le cœur. Lmaltier 06:55, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

anon's "Gaelic" requestEdit

i was wondering if i can get this saying translated into gaelic

"Everything I do i do for you"


Hmm, if by "Gaelic" you mean Irish then I think it would be Gach rud a dhéanann , dhéanann duit. Also, if you wanted to emphasise the "you", you could change the duit to "duitse". 50 Xylophone Players talk 22:59, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

English to Khmer, please. (Stephen G. Brown, read this)Edit

I want this: Kyle is forever or Kyle for life.

  • Kyle is forever = ខែលរហូត (kail rahoat) —Stephen 02:19, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Stephen G. Brown, may you please show me how to read that because I cannot read or see what you wrote. I only see these boxes with numbers in them.

You need two things in order to read Khmer. First, a Khmer font, such as these or these fonts. Second, you need a recent version of the usp10.dll shaping engine. What operating system are you using? If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then you are in good shape. If you have an older version of Windows, then you probably will need to download a new usp10.dll. —Stephen 02:23, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to say thank you. :)

english to hebrewEdit

Could someone please translate "I BELONG TO YESHUA" to hebrew please i need it for a tatoo. Thanks in advance.—This comment was unsigned.

I don't know the English word YESHUA. If you mean Jesus (of Nazareth), then I think אני שייך לישו should do if you're male, and אני שייכת לישו if you're female. Check with a native speaker, though, before getting a permanent tattoo.​—msh210 20:32, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
As a native speaker, I can confirm :) Jacobs 11:33, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I really appreciate it. -Krist

"Extreme Khmer" introductory phraseEdit

Stephen, you seem to be the Khmer expert around here, so I'll ask you directly. In each episode of the podcast (or vodcast) for 'Extreme Khmer', Frank Smith says what I would imagine to mean "Extreme Khmer" in Khmer (every episode is entirely in Khmer). The pronunciation of the phrase he uses is (to the best of my representation) /kʰmai kɾai lɛŋ/. First of all, what does this phrase exactly mean? Secondly, how is it written in Khmer? It's been puzzling me for years and, as my Khmer is very limited, I thought I'd ask an expert. Thank you.--Strabismus 21:10, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

ខ្មែរក្រៃលែង (khmaer krailaeng) means literally "extreme Khmer". —Stephen 06:54, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Awesome! Thank you!—Strabismus 21:13, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Translate from spanish to latinEdit

Happy New Year

I would like to translate the following from spanish to latin " Amo la vida "

Thank you very much.

That would be "Vitam amo" (if you just love it) or "Vitam diligo" (if you love it after having thought and contemplated every aspect about it). Happy New Year to you too :) -- 21:21, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
