Pa khair raghlai. Sta Pashto samadama da.


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620

Everyone in Pukhtunkhwa knows and regularly use the words for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 etc. It's mainly for numbers like, say, 32 where the Urdu word is used. Tsalwekht/tsalwesht is a common term among our people.

No, they do not. Ive lived in Pakhtunkhwa. The shopkeepers all say urdu numbers which I don't understand. The only paki shopkeepers that knew pashto numbers were the ones that had shops close to where Afghans lived so they were forced to learn the language of their customers.

Whatever, you ran away after making the thread about thanking Admin Khan. My question was before you made the thread and you saw my question and quickly logged off. Loopy put the answer up there for you guys intentionally cause he is embarrassed for you guys. No one asked him to answer.

Kaka they use Pashto and Urdu numbers interchangeably. Even if they do not use Pashto numbers they understand them perfectly.

No they do not. Go to any shopkeeper or taxi driver in Peshawar and tell them a number in pashto and they will look at you dumbfounded. If they do understand, they are most likely Afghan.

I have cousins that grew up in Peshawar and they don't know how to count in Pashto. Some of my cousins recently learnt how to count in Pashto after visiting Kabul. They were forced to.

Greetings,
I am a student of the Pashto language based in the UK. I am very greatful to have been accepted as a member of this wonderful forum - a great help for my study. Please would readers comment on my language usage above. Any corrections, tips or just general observations would be much appreciated. I apologize for typing in a Latin script in future I will make an effort to type in Pashto script. Please note I habitually use the Quetta accent, specifically the urban variety but try my best to incorporate elements of other dialects for a more wider reach. Thank you.
Kind regards,
A
Dear readers I apologize - I made two mistakes in my Pashto without realizing:

1) After reading some of your comments I realized that I said my age was "tsalwesht" (40) however I meant to say "tsalorwesht" (24) ! This is probably because of my not checking the post properly for errors.

2) The second stupid mistake I made was using "mashartob" (leadership) instead of "mashumtob" (childhood) ! again stupid and embarrassing :/
