While I was in Tajiksitan I scanned a copy of The Yagnobi Language by A. L. Khromov, 1972, Moscow. Recently, Gulruh Muhtarova has been kind enough to translate two sections for me. I have provided links to copies of all the chapters as well as the translated sections.
4/10/07 Update: bulbul has begun translating additional sections. I have added a link to the English translation of the section on adjectives, and translations of additional sections are coming!
I have listed the table of contents below along with links to the original text and the three translated sections: nouns, adjectives (from the chapter on morphology), and Syntax of Sentences. If anyone else has translated sections of this book, I would be glad to post them here as well. Also, if you have any suggestions for improvements to the translation please post them in a comment.
The transcriptions of Yaghnobi in the translation are not quite correct. This is partly because neither of us completely understand the Latin-phonetic transcription system that was used and partly due to font limitations. If anyone can help me correct the transcirptions I would greatly appreciate it! Please refer to the copies of the original text to get the correct transcription of Yaghnobi words and sentences.
