The original Pashto word for fish is Kab or Kap.

Cow is called Ghwa.

 

I see it very close to Ossetic.  Kap-Kaf and Ghwa-Ghog. I have heard a story about an Ossetian woman, who was married for a Pashto man in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. She told she could easily learn Pashto language because it is very close and many words sounded similar. I don't know how true it is.

Yes that's right, Kurdish languages tend to retain a more archaic pronunciation and structure.

Thanks! That's really interesting!

I have found a short ossetic-english words list but it doesn't get downloaded.

Indeed. As Aryan as it gets. They're the closest surviving kin of the Alans, according to historians.

     many western alans would differ to disagree with this comment. historians are forgetting about the mass migration of alans in 406AD. alan blood runs true in a lot of peeps the world over.

Where have you got the picture from? I don't think she looks like typical Ossetian girl. Or maybe picture is too old and not of good quality. Anyway you are wrong, if you want to develop some ideas based on that picture. There are many Ossetian sites and photos there. For example pictures of hostage situation in Beslan school are published on many sites with photos of children and adults

  http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://media.military photos.net/photos/albums/Beslan/aae.sized.jpg&imgrefurl= http://media.militaryphotos.net/photos/Beslan/aae&h=508& amp; amp;w=800&sz=61&tbnid=0gEGLvaP4oIJ:&tbnh=90& tbnw=142&hl=en&start=14&prev=/images%3Fq%3DOsset ia%2B%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26rls%3DGGLD,GGLD:2005- 14,GGLD:en%26sa%3DG

There is site www.ossetians.com with photos also

http://ossetians.com/rus/news.php?newsid=624&f=32&PH PSESSID=3c9635c48b0f8e1e42e1789f09f4c490

News agency 15-th region http://region15.ru/ also publishes photos of people every day. So we don't hide our faces. What is actually your point?

The most widespread fish in the Caspian sea (in fact it is native to the Caspian sea but has been introduced into Europe, North America, and elsewhere.), is Carp, in Persian Kapur.

 

Carp/eng.l. = in Slovakian language KAPOR, in Czech its KAPR

Good evening!

So glad to see that all of you discuss ossetian people and culture. I am osetian (iron) boy from Osetia-Alania. I have fortunately found this forum and I was pleasantly surprised by your posts.

 

The story I want tell happened last year. I have been on student festival where met two girls and a boy from Iran. For that time I knew that we have a lot of language links. But when we started comparing some words we were totally shocked. We discovered that even without preparations some more than 20 words were found, which  are almost the same.

 

For now I just remember:

 

tarkhus (a rabbit)

sudzin  (a needle)

paddjah (a king)

margh (a bird)

ih (ix) (in ice)

zaman (time, epoch)

byryndjy (a rice)

'nguyldz (a finger)

 

So thanks for your curiosity!

Zaman - i thought we serbs borrowed it from turks (as zeman)...although it's very rarely used today...byryndjy - it's pirinach in serbian...sounds similar

They have black hairs and are proud of it!

You don't like separatists? I am one of them. Smile I believe there is nothing wrong if some nations want self rulling. It is matter of time when the international community recognize the right of nations for self-determination. Smile

It is not correct. I would say there are three "parties" there. Some want to separate from Georgia and be an independent state. Some wont to join the North Ossetia, that is a constitutional republic of Russia. Some want to remain in Georgia, but they want to have very much of autonomy. The history of south ossetian separatism is similar to Texas. They declared independence on January 19, 1992 as independent state. But later, after government of Kokoiti won election, they want to be annexed by Russia. Though Russia formally refuces, it provides military and economical support. I think there is much geopolitics there, because Georgia is joining NATO and supporting US influence there and Russia wants to keep control there. So the separatists are also taking advantage of that geopolitical situation.
