An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri


Book II



This is a companion volume (Part II) to An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri. In this volume we have included a glossary which is divided into three parts. The first part gives English equivalents for Kashmiri words. The second part gives Kashmiri equivalents for English words. The third part includes a partial list of English borrowings in Kashmiri. In addition, there is also included a glossary of select t.mp3s used in this manual, and suggestions for further readings on the Kashmiri language, culture and history.

The Kashmiri words have been arranged to the order in traditional dictionaries of Hindi printed in the Devanagri script. Note also the following:

  • A short vowel is written before a long vowel, e.g., asun 'to laugh' is listed before a:sun 'to be'.
  • A nasalized vowel is alphabetized before non-nasalized vowels, e.g.,  'stone of a fruit' before  'eight'.
  • The items in the English-Kashmiri section are alphabetized according to the order of the English alphabet.
  • As stated in the section on the sounds of Kashmiri, i and yi are in free-variation in the initial position. We have listed all these items under i.
