Please do not be intimidated by what I am going to show you now – the entire alphabet! The purpose is to give you a bird’s-eye view of all the Persian letters, and their various shapes, in their natural (alphabetical) order. This is the order in which you will need to remember the letters if you wish to make good use of your Persian-English dictionary.

Compare: After some vowels (such as ā) ast ‘is’ often loses its vowel. Thus, ŝomā ‘you’ followed by ast becomes ŝomāst, as in this sentence from Dialogue 2: In colloquial Persian, the sequence of sounds ān is often pronounced un. Thus, ān ‘that’/‘it’ and ānhā ‘they’ will be written as un and unhā in this book to reflect their colloquial pronunciation. g. kodām ‘which’ and ārām ‘calm’, which are pronounced kodum and ārum respectively.

Direct or indirect object? A direct object is one that is affected directly by the verb. Example: (a) I bought Peter a sandwich. In the above sentence, the word ‘sandwich’ is the direct object because it was the sandwich that was bought, not Peter! ) When you refer to the same ‘sandwich’ again, you say ‘the sandwich’: (b) He ate the sandwich. Now the word ‘sandwich’ is a definite direct object. In Persian, such an object is normally followed by the word rā. No rā is needed for (a) because ‘a sandwich’ is indefinite.
