I compiled this lexicon using transcriptions and recordings of spoken texts, as well as elicitation sessions with Yagnobi language consultants. My primary consultant was Dr. Saifiddin Mirzoev. The Tajik glosses for Yagnobi words were almost all povided by him. While much of the content of this lexicon was based on consultation with Dr. Mirzoev, and although I did also consult his Yagnobi lexicon, I made a effort to keep this lexicon an original and independant work.
The Yagnobi and Tajik entries are written in modified Cyrillic orthography. The pronunciation of some of the Yagnobi words is also given in IPA. The etymologies are given where I was able to determine them with a reasonable degree of certainty. It is important to note that the words that are listed as “from Tajik” are not necessarily borrowings. All I know at this point is that they are words that are common to both Yagnobi and Tajik and are probably borrowed, but they could also be words that came into both languages from a common source, like naghs ‘good’ which came from Sogdian.
This lexicon was created using Lexique Pro.
