Grammatical gender in New Azari dialects of Šāhrūd*

  • Aharon Vardanian (a1)

Abstract

Unlike some other New Azari dialects 1 (Kalāsurī, Harzandī, 2 etc.), Šāhrūdī 3 preserves grammatical gender, which is reflected in nouns and sporadically in adjectives, pronouns and the verbal system. In this regard Šāhrūdī is similar to the Tākestānī dialects, in which the opposition of feminine and masculine is also attested in nominal, adjectival, pronominal and verbal systems (Yarshater 1969a: 198–9). In the Šāhrūd dialect group there is no gender marker for masculine, except for the 3rd person singular of the present tense of the auxiliary verb.
