Hi Brian,

I’ve just posted a couple of links to your site to the Sogdian-L discussion group. If you haven’t heard of this group and have any curiosity about it, the homepage is located here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sogdian-L

I’m very happy to see that translation of Khromov’s book has begun, and the bibliographical information that you have provided here is also very helpful, although I suspect that some of the titles will be hard to come by in the United States. I look forward to having a detailed look at your lexicon in the near future.

Best wishes,

James Ward

Hi James,

Thank you for connecting me with the members of the Sogdian-L discussion group. I didn’t even know such a group existed! It would be interesting to hear how each of you became interested in Sogdian.

I agree that many of the publications listed in my Yaghnobi bibliography may be hard to find in the USA, but not impossible. I have some of these and am willing to scan portions for those who request them. Guests who have left comments on this blog may have access to other materials and may be willing to share them, and some are available through itnerlibrary loan. If we all work together we will all benefit!

Ман аслан ягноби хастам. Ин барои ман хело зарур буд.

Bakhtior, it’s great to get your comments on the site. I do understand Tajik, but not Russian. I don’t currently have a Tajik font or keyboard software on this computer so I can’t answer you in Tajik.

I wish I had time to translate the Yaghnobi blog into Tajik, but I’m too busy and my Tajik ability isn’t that good. If someone would like to volunteer to translate these posts into Tajik and/or Russian, that would be great!

Hey, I wonder if there are somewhere on the net sound samples of Yaghnobi available?!

Thanks!

Hi Bahrom!
I wonder did you ever seen any interesting photo feature about Yaghnobi people?

Dear friends,
the University of Bologna has been organising an ethno-linguistic research project on the Yaghnob valley, directed by Antonio Panaino, for the last five years.
If someone is interested in our research, please feel welcome to contact us

Dear Paolo,

Thank you very much for posting this video, it was fascinating. I’m very glad you and your colleagues are conducting this kind of research. Hopefully it will help the Yagnobis preserve their language and cultural traditions and identity.

It was interesting to see their appearance as well. They look, as many Persian and Tajik people do, like Europeans, with maybe just a slight Indian appearance as well. If they were in Western clothes, I think they could be walking around any city in Europe or North America and not stand out at all. Its interesting to think that these people are the remnants of a peoples that once covered a much larger area in middle of Asia.
