Haha, okay! Let me try that again (and thanks)! :D (And I'm generally not busy during my weekends ;)).

Li çar aliyên cîhanê 1'ê Rezberê wekî Roja Aştiyê ya Cîhanê tê pîrozkirin. Di 1'ê rezbera sala 1939'an de Polonya hat dagirkirin. Bi vê dagirkirinê Şerê Cîhanê yê Duyemîn hat dest pê kirin. :?: Di vî şerî de zêdetirî 50 milyon mirovî hev û du hatin kuştin. Piştî şeş salan di roja 1'ê rezbera sala 1945'an de peymana aştiyê hat morkirin.

Piştî şer, 1'ê Rezberê wekî "Roja Aştiyê ya Cîhanê" ji bo aştiyeke gerdûnî û mayînde hat îlankirin. Her sal Roja Aştiyê ya Cîhanê bi çalakiyên cur bi cur tê pîrozkirin.

'Hev û du' means 'each other' so it should be removed.

And I'm not sure about the case of "mirov". I don't understand why it is singular in the original sentence. Numbers normally require plural, so I would expect "zêdetirî 50 milyon mirovan".

hat dest pê kirin

hat destpêkirin

That's cool that you found out that there is a song with this lyrics!


This website is blocked in Turkey:

I can open it with VPN or find the lyrics on another website. I just wanted to show that blocking of Kurdish media in Turkey is real.

I found this cool website with recordings and transcripts of various Kurdish dialects from Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. Finally, we can study with authentic materials, not the standard which is to some extent artificial.

Spas, voron! Maybe we can use that once you're ready to do Kurdish again! :)
