About Kyuren


Kyuren (Natively Կշուրներեն Kşurneren) is an Iranian language of the West North-Central Branch spoken by Kurds in Armenia's Syunik Province. It is spoken by about 9,000 people in the province as well as by 6,000 people in Mianeh County, Iran. The language is most closely related to Kurdish, and includes some Old Armenian, Persian, and Turkic borrowings.

Կշուրնե (Րըտսակ․ Կշուրներեն Kşurneren) ջըվախը ֆարսիյե շեխ կւար֊մըճօնար պօխտար, կե ըվ գոտօ բե կուրդօն ան Դօխը Ճունիկը Հայաստան։ Ըվ գոտօ բե տաղրիբ 9,000 շասօն ան դօհ եմ֊խամ բե 6,000 շասօն ան Դօխը Միյօնեհ, Իրօն։ Ջըվահ բիսատ նեզդեխե ատ Կուրմանջի, ու կետատէյ աջ Հայերեն Կավան, Ֆօրսի ու Տուրկի ւեվէ։

ԽԷՐԱԿԱՆ - GRAMMAR

Features:
- As with most of my a posteriori creations, I try to provide an etymology for every single word in the dictionary.
- SOV, fusional, split-ergative in the past tense.
- Nouns distinguished by animacy and take 4 cases (NOMNominative (case)
TRANS subject, INTR argument
, ACCAccusative (case)
TRANS direct object; patient
, CNSConstruct state
noun being possessed
, VOCVocative (case)
'O [addressee]'
) across two numbers (SGSingular (number)
one countable entity
, PLPlural (number)
more than one/few
)
- Verbs conjugate to two tenses (PSTPast (tense)
action occurred before moment of speech
, NPSTNon-past (tense)
present, continuous and future
) and two aspects (PFVPerfective (aspect)
completed action
, IPFVImperfective (aspect)
'interrupted or incomplete'
), as well as three moods (IMPImperative (mood)
command
, CONDConditional (mood)
[if X,] then I would...
, OPTOptative (mood)
'wish, hope'
)
- Verbs have special present and past tense roots/stems. For example, the verb ւարտըր wartȩr has the present tense stem ւար war and the past tense stem ւատ wat. Note: where it says "present root" in the dictionary, it's actually non-past.
- Ambipositions, i.e., circumfixed adpositions
- Fucking allophony everywhere
- Ridiculously short imperatives
- Written in the glorious Հայոց Այբուբեն!
