Word for the Travel Wise (07/03/06)
Today's word is an Azeri word used in Azerbaijan:
babatdir - so-so (as in one's mood or being)
Azeri, also known as Azerbaijani, Azari, Azeri and Azeri Turkish is he official language of the Republic of Azerbaijan. However, Iran is home for a majority of the Azeri speakers in the world. It is spoken in Russia's Republic of Dagestan, south-eastern Georgia, northern Iraq, and eastern Turkey. I wanted to present you with a better word for the first lesson in Azeri, but there are several with that upside down e and for me to try to give you one of those without the right character would cause too much confusion. Wiki has the lang background info and Azeri.org has some online lessons.
I'll be patrolling the web for more online sources.
