This is a compilation of Yaghnobi stories written using latin phonetic transcription. Each story is followed by a linguistic commentary in Russian. There is an appendix with a Yaghnobi-Russian dictionary. (According to S. Mirzoev, the dictionary contains far more Tajik loan words than actual Yaghnobi words.)
I have an electronic copy of most the body of this book (not the appendix), but have not found a translation in English.
This book is in the U of O library. I’ve asked one of my colleagues to translate the table of contents and will know more about this book soon.
I found this article by searching WorldCat, and have ordered it through interlibrary loan, but have not recieved it yet.
This online article is one of the best overviews of the Yaghnobi language that I have seen. It also includes an extensive bibliography and history of the study of Yaghnobi.
I have not been able to get a copy of this text, but would like to see it if anyone knows where it is available. I would love to get an English translation of at least the table of contents.
Pages 155 – 195 comprise the section on Iranian languages, including some typological discussion of Yaghnobi. Comrie states that Khromov’s grammer is the only published grammar of Yaghnobi.
I have not seen this article yet. It was listed in a bibliography on the now defunct Iranian Languages & Scripts web site.
I found this book on WorldCat, and have ordered it through interlibrary loan, but have not seen the book yet.
This book has sections on phonology, morphology, syntax, texts, and a short lexicon. The subjects covered in the morphology and syntax sections are: Nouns, adjectives, numbers, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, exclamations, auxiliaries, prepositions, postpositions, conjunctions, interjections, syntax of sentences, simple sentences, sentences without subjects, incomplete sentences, prolepsis, complex sentences, complex sentences without conjunctions, dependant complex sentences, lexicon, and complex words.
According to S. Mirzoev, this is the most complete description of Yaghnobi morphology and syntax that has been published. I have an electronic copy of most of this book, and it is also available in the U of O library. I am currently having excerpts translated into English.
This is the most complete and authoritative Yaghnobi dictionary in existance. It includes definitions for Yaghnobi words in Tajik and example sentences in Yaghnobi with translations in Tajik.
This book is writtten almost entirely in Tajik with the exception of example words and sentences given in Yaghnobi. The first part of the book gives an intorduction and history of the Yaghnobi people and language, the next section covers Yaghnobi grammar and the rest of the book is a discussion of Yaghnobi vocabulary from the perspective of culture and etymology. There is also a chapter on the “secret” language of the Yahgnobis.
This is a collection of stories in Yaghnobi with birief text in Tajik to help students understand the grammar and vocabulary in the Yaghnobi stories.
General note: Saifiddin Mirzoev often uses the non-Russified patronymic of Mirzozoda. In some of his publications, his name is written Mirzoev, and in others, it is written Mirzozoda.
I have copies of most of S. Mirzoev’s publications in Tajik and can translate excerpts for anyone who is interested.
I have a copy of this 1st grade primer which teaches the alphabet using Tajik-Cyrillic orthography and examples of words and sentences in Yaghnobi.
This paper includes several paragraphs on Yaghnobi. It is interesting to note that both Payne and Comrie appear to have relied exclusively on Khromov for their Yaghnobi data.
