OMG LETS DO IT ALL. Learn Tukrmen together and I help you with Uzbek and you help me with Arabic!! ALSO, are you talking about Shughni like the Pamiri language? Can you send me sources for that too please :o?!

That would be awesome!

I have a source on Shughni (one poor English translation of what I think was a poor Russian translation of a Tajik book).

I also have an Etymological Dictionary of Wakhi and a book of Wakhan Stories for Children (in Russian) … There are also more Wakhi things in Russian out there but I haven’t gotten them yet cuz my Russian isn’t so great…

I also have a bunch on Uyghur (I’m not going there yet, but you might be interested…)

so many different cultures and languages in PAKISTAN. but it is making film post production life difficult, if you speak wakhi and can help with translations, email us at and we will send you a couple of audio files
