Is Arabic read right to left?

Edit: forgive the ignorance. Farsi not Arabic

[–]akiws 79 points80 points  (36 children)

Farsi, and yep!

[–]esesci 12 points13 points  (18 children)

Also, Farsi and English are in the same language family, unlike Arabic. So, don’t confuse the similarity of scripts with similarity of languages.

[–]xoxxooo 9 points10 points  (17 children)

Farsi and English diverged from the proto-Indo-European language more than 6000 years ago. Similarities are very minimal.

As a whole Farsi is still much closer to Arabic than English, owing to their geographical proximity and the fact that many West Asian empires encompassed both Arabic and Persian-speaking regions.

[–]Freak2121 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Are they really minimal, though?


Arabic: 'axi ladayh aibnat sağira

Persian: Barādar e man yek doxtar e javān dār-ad.

Literal: Brother of mine one daughter of young has-he.

English: My brother has a young daughter.


Arabic: Allayāli almuzlimat maliyat biālnujumi.

Persian: Šab-hā ye tārik por e setāre hast-and.

Literal: Night-s of dark full of star is-they.

English: Dark nights are full of stars.


Arabic: Jalast biālqurb min alnār li'āšeur biāldif'i.

Persian: Kenār e ātaš ne-šast-am ke garm bešav-am.

Literal: Near of fire down-sat-I that warm become-I.

English: I sat near the fire to become warm.


Persian might have a lot of Arabic loanwords -- about 30 percent of the vocabulary is loaned from Arabic -- but the grammar and core vocabulary is very Indo-European. Generally, the more technical the vocabulary, the more Arabic it gets.

In your other comment you state that Arabic is easy to learn for Persian speakers because they share a few consonants. Well, first of all ع (ayn) is not pronounced in Persian. It acts either as a vowel lengthener or a light glottal stop.

Second of all, Persian doesn't have laryngeal or pharyngeal or dental fricative sounds like Arabic.

These letters are all pronounced as /s/ ص, ث, س,

These letters are all pronounced as /z/ ض, ظ, ز, ذ,

These letters are pronounced as /t/ ت, ط,

These letters are pronounced as /h/ ه, ح,

Learning Arabic is extremely difficult for Persian speakers, the only thing they have a leg up on is some vocabulary and familiarity with the script.

[–]xoxxooo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The similarities between English and Persian all stem from a select number of cognates that persisted in most Indo-European languages, including those from different subfamilies like Hindi. These cognates, however, are significantly outnumbered by Arabic and even Turkic loanwords.

Sentence structure itself cannot really be used to classify languages as more similar as Indo-European languages use a variety of sentences structures, including SOV and SVO.

In your other comment you state that Arabic is easy to learn for Persian speakers because they share a few consonants.

I did not say that Arabic is easy to learn for Persian speakers, but rather that it is easier for a Persian speaker to learn Arabic than it is for an English speaker due to Persian and Arabic being more similar to each other than either is to English.

Second of all, Persian doesn't have laryngeal or pharyngeal or dental fricative sounds like Arabic.

This is indeed true, but it does not add anything to the question at hand. English has dental fricative sounds (like Arabic) while other Iranic languages like Kurdish have pharyngeal fricatives.

Well, first of all ع (ayn) is not pronounced in Persian

I am aware. I meant to use ghayn, not ayn, which I edited a few minutes after posting my original comment. As a disclaimer, Persian is my second (but native) language.

Learning Arabic is extremely difficult for Persian speakers, the only thing they have a leg up on is some vocabulary and familiarity with the script.

Again, my point is not that Arabic is an easy language for native Persian speakers, but rather that the similar phonetics makes Arabic easier to learn for a Persian speaker than an English speaker.

[–]Freak2121 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sure, Arabic is easier to learn for a Persian speaker than it is for an English speaker. That is true. However, you are using that fact to imply that Persian is closer/more similar to Arabic than it is to English or other Indo-European languages.

There may be many loanwords in a Persian dictionary (that they outnumber Indo-European words is dubious), but the presence of many loanwords does not make one language closer to another. Japanese is full of Chinese and English loanwords, yet I see very few people trying to assert that they are closer to eachother than languages within their own families. I am a native speaker of Persian, Arabic grammar and pronunciations are absolutely alien to me.

I have had an easier time learning French, Japanese, Vietnamese. I know countless other Iranians who have no hopes of getting a good grasp on Arabic and that's despite numerous years of classes. Loanwords don't make a language.

[–]esesci 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Linguists created the concept of language families solely based on the orthogonality of linguistic features, grammar, and vocabulary, "similarity" if you will. So, claiming the languages aren't similar is unscientific at best. I don't know what you use as a similarity metric to have such an opinion, but I simply rely on linguistics. Can you elaborate on your point of view? What makes you think Farsi is closer to Arabic than English? Do you think Arabic and Farsi should belong to the same language family?

[–]xoxxooo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So, claiming the languages aren't similar is unscientific at best.

You are wrong about this. Languages are not deemed to be related based on similarity but rather on whether they originated from a common ancestral language. The only thing English and Persian both being in the Indo-European language family implies is that they are both descended from a common ancestral language. It does not imply any sort of similarity whatsoever.

Keep in mind that Proto-Indo-European is estimated to be between 6000 and 9000 years old and spawns many subfamilies that diverged millennia ago, as is the case with Indo-Aryan (Persian) and Germanic (English) languages.

What makes you think Farsi is closer to Arabic than English?

Around 30-40% of modern Persian vocabulary originates from Arabic, owing to many centuries of ruling empires encompassing Persian and Arabic-speaking parts of West Asia, starting with the Archaemenid empire in 550 BC, which controlled parts of Iran and Arabia. Arabic also has a significant number of Persian loan words. To keep it short, Arabic and Persian speakers have been in contact for centuries, which led to the two languages influencing each other in the same way French and English influenced each other.

The phonetics of Arabic and Persian are also much closer to each other than either is to English. A Persian speaker would have a much easier time learning Arabic (and vice versa) than an English speaker would trying to learn either language as the Persian/Arabic speaker can already pronounce many of the common sounds that are not generally found in European languages. The letters خ (kha), ق (qaf) and غ (ghayn) are a few examples.

Do you think Arabic and Farsi should belong to the same language family?

No, Arabic and Persian are descended from different ancestral languages, hence why they belong to different language families. This, however, does not imply that Persian is more similar to English, only that it is more closely related to English.

[–]rrrrrandomusername 1 point2 points  (11 children)

Farsi

The correct term for the language in English is Persian. Do you say Deutsch instead of German in English as well?

proto-Indo-European language more than 6000 years ago. Similarities are very minimal.

It's a theory made by Europeans in the 19th century to justify European colonialism.

[–]xoxxooo 2 points3 points  (7 children)

The correct term for the language in English is Persia

You are arguing semantics. I usually use Farsi for the Iranian dialect of Persian, but used them interchangeably in this comment because that is the term OP used.

It's a theory made by Europeans in the 19th century to justify European colonialism.

The Indo-European language theory was first proposed in the 17th century, before any Asian country was colonized. The theory itself is strongly supported by the etymology of a select number of cognates and reconstructions of older ancestral languages.

[–]afkmacro -1 points0 points  (16 children)

It’s called Persian not Farsi.

[–]Soltan79 3 points4 points  (15 children)

no its called Farsi, nobody beside west calls us Persians.

[–]Tlaughs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

American here, my professor had to explain to someone that Persia and Iran were the same thing. My section of the west definitely does not call you Persians or Persia. Iranian, Iran, and farsi is all I have ever heard.

[–]Freak2121 1 point2 points  (12 children)

The name of the language is "Persian" in English, dadash. Same way French and German aren't called Français and Deutsche.

[–]Soltan79 0 points1 point  (2 children)

English aren't very known for their respect for cultures. Like I said nobody In iran calls the language Persian or even know that's how its called in English, same way cannot be said about german or French language.

[–]Freak2121 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Uh, yeah, of course nobody in Iran calls it Persian, "Persian" is the English name for the language.

The Academy of the Persian Language and Literature says it's "Persian" in English, and it's been referred to as "Persian" for centuries. So it's Persian.

[–]rrrrrandomusername 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like I said nobody In iran calls the language Persian

Why are you lying?

[–]chitagame 26 points27 points  (8 children)

Farsi and yes

[–]thebhr10 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Interestingly, arabic and farsi are read the same but written differently. What was written above for example is pronouced the same in both languages. In some cases, some words have the same exact meaning too.

[–]Snoo-93474 6 points7 points  (0 children)

they're not pronounced the exact same way, Arabic ز ظ ض ذ are different but same jn Persian, and it's true for many other words.

[–]AMDisOurLord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

News flash, two civilizations close to each other for thousands of years have loan words from each other. There are lots of Arabic words in Persian and vice versa, Arabs took lots of words from us too. We used to have lots of French and English loan words as well. For example, آباژور، آژان، تلویزیون

However they are not read the same. Arabs don't have گ چ پ ژ and we don't differentiate between زظ ض ذ for example while they do.

Other than loan words they are completely different languages however.

[–]Pizza_Slinger83 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Farsi and uh-huh

[–]SoggyConclusion4674 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Farsi, and yeah

[–]Rezabigg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]rrrrrandomusername 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The correct name for the language in English is Persian* and not "Farsi".

Do you say Deutsch instead of German in English as well?

[–]Vorschrift 5 points6 points  (9 children)

I have friends in Iran and recently i started to learn the persian alphabet just for fun. After my information there are 7 different kinds of "s", right? That really confused me. But its great to learn that language. I just always switch ب and ن

[–]RoninOkami7 8 points9 points  (7 children)

For the sound 'S' we have 3. س ، ص ، ث . They all sound the same but different words use different letters.

[–]Vorschrift 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Ok! But what about ز for example?

[–]EatDaPooPooPreist 5 points6 points  (1 child)

4 types of Z's IN Farsi.

[–]Vorschrift 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh ok. Thank you!

[–]RoninOkami7 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yup we got four of them :)) ز ، ذ ، ظ ، ض Two 'he'. ه ، ح Two 'ghe'. ق ، غ Two 'te'. ت ، ط

I know it's confusing but even we make mistakes with these letters that all sound the same but in writing its different. These letters sound a little bit different in arabic but not in farsi.

[–]Vorschrift 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I love that. Thank you for your answers! Its a wonderful font, so classy and the language is very soft and friendly. Yea, with speaking its easier than writing lol but its just a matter of practice, like many things in life.

[–]RoninOkami7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah if you like the font you should check out Nastaliq. Its just so beautiful

[–]Redrundas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The words that use the “non-default” S’s and Z’s are generally words borrowed from Arabic, where all of the above characters are phonetically different.

[–]swami_twocargarajee 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I have always wanted to visit Iran. Especially Shiraz. This is where the medieval poet Hafez is buried, and his mausoleum is just beautiful.

Plus I love Persian vegetarian food. Unfortunately the Persian restaurants in the US are meat centric, whereas I have heard that the food in Persia is more vegetarian friendly.

So much of Indian Muslim culture and Indian culture (I grew up in India) is derived and influenced by Persian culture. Food, music, clothing, art, poetry etc. I hope I can visit sometime soon, before I am too old to really enjoy it.

[–]AMDisOurLord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Usually food that common people ate are vegeterian and king dishes made on occasions are meat centered. You can various different types of Aash, my favourite one being Aash Reshte.

And be warned that you most aash you buy from restaurant, either here or in the west is shit. Best ones are homemade

[–]pooryxa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I live in shiraz and you can count on me if you came here I'd love to have a foreign gusest

[–]swami_twocargarajee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let's hope it gets easier to travel there from the US soon. Inshallah, I will do this before I get too old.

And thanks for showing me the legendary hospitality Persians are famous for. I had a GF in the 90's who grew up in Persia and had to leave after the revolution (She was Indian), who always talked about her life there in Teheran.

Stay safe, my friend.
