I don't know exactly how to describe it, but I guess it sounds kinda similar to Farsi vowels. Like پلار is pronounce more like "plor" than "plar." We also elongate final vowels a lot. So دښمن is pronounced "dikhmaan" instead of "dukhman" or "dushman."



Shisha/Khikha is glass.

kooshash/kookhakh is effort.
Ohh that!!
I have never heard Kokhakh or khikha, this is the first time!!

P.S. I would pronounce them as 'Koshish' and 'Shisha'

First time I heard them was on Afghan news. I had no idea that anyone pronounced them like that, but I looked them up and, sure enough, the spelling in Pashto is with the Pashto kheen/sheen instead of Arabic sheen.

They sound funny pronounced that way though lol.

Strangely, my family are from Ghazni, we would also say "Koshish, shisha" but we are a munga dialect.

So which dialects say those words with a kheen?

I assume there has to be some dialect that pronounces them that way, otherwise why wouldn't they just be spelled with the Arabic sheen?

I think "kokhikh" and "khikha" are examples of words that are only "Kha-ified" in certain northern dialects and not uniformly "khai-ified". "Rekhtya" is another example of such a word. In most northern dialects it is pronounced as "reshtya" but in some areas(I think Swabi is one of those areas) it is pronounced as "rekhtya."

I think the reason why we'd say dushman and koshish is because that's how Farsiwan say those words. Because as Traveller mentioned we say words like rikhtia and kha and khaghalai more in line with munga-kha dialect.
