Today's word is “cold.” This is a feminine word, but note that Western Syriac speakers use the masculine word “quro” as well.

Today's word, "January," is brought to you by ACSSU. Some Eastern sub-dialects pronounce the word differently and say "kaanoon khaaraayaa." It is also very common to hear people use the term "yarkhid khaa" (first month) for January.

“Eelaanaa” is a masculine word, while “eelaantaa” is the feminine version of the word “tree.” Most western dialects say “dawmo,” for tree.

Today's word is "gift," which is a masculine noun. Some Eastern Syriac speakers use "hadeeya," which is an Arabic loan word. Others use"pashkash" or "pishkish," which is a Kurdish/Persian word.

Shlama/ܫܠܵܡܵܐ!

The final word for November is "kitchen." An alternate for Western Syriac is "beth TboHo" and alternates for Eastern Syriac include "beth t'baakhaa" or "beth booshaalaa/bashlanta/baashaaltaa". Some people use foreign loan words as well such as "madbakh" and "achpaskhana," which are not Syriac words.

"E'rootha" is another word for "awakening" in East Syriac. "Quyomo (m)/qyumto (f)" is a variant for "awakening" in Western Syriac.

The theme for the month of November is brought to you by our friends at the Central California Assyrian Student and Youth Association (CCASYA). To kick off this month, we have the word "zar`e"which translates to "seeds". Fun fact: this word is pronounced the same in both Eastern and Western Syriac!
