Persian (farsi) Languages How is Persian(Farsi) for building new scientific words?

Recommended Posts

In the name of GodIn this short article we are going to explain how new words can be built in Persian(Farsi), as an 'Indo-European' language(Indo-European languages include languages like: Persian(Farsi), Greek, Latin, German, French, English,etc).This article is written based on Prof.Hessabi's(the great Iranian scientist that is famous as the father of physics in Iran,peace be upon him) discussion on Persian's capabilities vs Arabic.We are going to discuss on the structure of Indo-European languages.we want to see how its possible to build many scientific words in these languages easily.There are little root-words in Persian that are about 1500 ones(that makes the language easy to learn)and approximately 250 prefixes and 600 suffixes that adding them to roots , many words can be built.For example using the root 'ro' (i dont have Persian font , so i have to use Pinglish(Persian-English)), and the prefixe 'pish', words like 'pishro' and 'pishraft' can be built that mean leader and improvement respectively.Also using the same root with suffixes 'and', 'ar' and 'ash' words like 'ravand', 'raftar' and 'ravash' can be built that mean process,behaviour and approach respectively.In this example you see that the root 'ro' is used in too shepes,namely 'ro' and 'raft'.Just suppose that we ignore these multishapes of the roots and we consider the number of the roots 1500 ones as it was,then the combination of the roots and prefixes equals 1500*250=375000.Now any of the words obtained this way, can be combined with one of the suffixes to have a new word.For example the word 'khod gozashteh' (someone who considers others' benefit more than his own ) that is made up of 'khod' as the prefixe and 'gozasht' as the root,when combined with the suffixe 'gi' can result the word 'khod gozashtegi' that means considering others' benefits more than yours.Also the word 'pishgoftar' that means preface can be obtained by using the prefixe 'pish', the root 'goft' and the suffixe 'ar'.If we combine the 375000 words obtained by combining the 1500 roots and 250 prefixes with the 600 suffixes,the number of words that will be produced equals 375000*600=225000000 (two handered and twenty-five millions).Also words that include only a root and a suffixe should be counted that this one equals 1500*600=900000 (nine hundered thousands). So the sum of all the words produced this way,namely words that are made up of the combination of roots, prefixes and suffixes is as follows, 225000000+375000+900000=226275000 (two hundered twenty-six million and two hundered seventy-five thousands).In this calculation we only considered the combination of roots with prefixes and suffixes,and only with one of the pronunciations available for a single root.But there are also other combinations available, such as combination of noun with verb like 'piadeh ro' (walkway),noun with noun like 'kherad pishe' (someone who thinks alot), noun with adjective like 'roshan del' (some one who has a bright heart)and verb with verb like 'goftegou' (talking) and many other possible combinations in Indo-European languages that if we want to count them all,the number of words possible to exist knows no boundary.The very important point regarding this fact is that all we have to do in order to understand these million words is to learn only the 1500 roots and 850 prefixes and suffixes, while Prof.Hessabi has shown that if you want to understand 2 million words in Arabic ,you have to learn 25000 roots and the very complicated rules of Arabic language(if you are familiar with Arabic ,you will agrea this about the rules).If possible, i will translate and send an other article from Prof.Hessabi regarding capabilities of Arabic language.The basic ability of Indo-European languages is what has been told above.Laguage of Persian(Farsi) is one of the Indo-European languages and has the same roots,prefixes and suffixes.Pronunciation of letters is different, in different Indo-European languages, but these differences are in some distinct rhythm.Any capability that is within Indo-European languages like Greek,Latin,German,French and English can be found in Persian(Farsi) too.Distinct scientific approaches for finding suitable synonyms regarding foreign scientific words for Indo-European languages is improved and ready to use and its easy to manipulate them in Persian.In order to choose a scientific word in Persian the whole thing that has to be done is to compare the word that is in one of the branches of the Indo-European languages to the Persian branch and match them.
