[Azeri] Days of the Week & Months

Postby kalemiye » 2010-09-07, 19:18

I have an agenda bought in Iranian Azerbaijan that was given to me as a present, and I was very surprised to know that apparently names of days and months in Iranian Azerbaijani have different names than their Persian counterparts.

They don't seem to be used at all, and I couldn't get the meaning of some of them (if somebody has an Azeri dictionary, please look up the words I couldn't guess :)), nevertheless I am posting them here.

Months

آغلار گولو -فروردین
گولن آی - smiling month ۔ اردیبهشت
قیزاران آی - Month that turns red (fried, blushed... i don't quite get the meaning)-خرداد
قورا پیشیرن آی month in which small grapes grow - تیر
قویروق دوغان - Growing tail (?) - مرداد
زومار آیی - No idea - شهریور
خزل آیی - Month of yellow leaves - مهر
قیروو آیی - No idea - آبان
آذر - Same as in Persian calendar
چیلله - In Persian Calendar this is the name of the last day of the Azar month, but in Azeri it seems to give name to a whole month.- دی
دوندوران آی - Freezing month - بهمن
بایرام آی - Month of holiday (it is the last month) - اسفند

Days of the Week

یئل لی گونو - Windy day - شنبه
سود گونو - I dont really know, سودhas the meaning of benefit in Persian, but idk in Azeri :?: - یکشنبه
:arrow: I found this one also as تورپاق گونو - Soil/Land day
دوز گونو - This one I don't know if means "salt day"or "flat day" :lol: - دوشنبه
آرا گون - Middle day - سه‌شنبه
اود گونو - Fire day- چهارشنبه
سو گونو - Day of water - پنجشنبه
آینی گونو - Same day - جمعه

Yes, but unfortunately I don't think they are used anymore.

btw, سود گونو means süt günü. :D

In Azerbaijan we use Latin names for months and Persian ones for days of the week.
Yanvar, Fevral, Mart, Aprel, May, İyul, İyun, Avqust, Sentyabr, Oktyabr, Noyabr, Dekabr

As for days, we usually use just:
Birinci gün, İkinci gün, Üçüncü gün, Dördüncü gün, Beşinci gün, Altıncı gün, Bazar günü

I wonder if the ones written on my agenda have ever been used at all, do you happen to know of any article about Azerbaijani calendar?

The ones currently used in Azerbaijan are way easier to remember! :)
