    ThePashto.com: An English-Pashto online dictionary




    Here’s a treat for all those you have been yearning to learn the Pashto language:ThePashto.com, an online dictionary which helps you translate from Pashto to English and English to Pashto.


    According to a report by ProPakistani, the dictionary currently has more than 15,000 words along with grammatical descriptions of the words, and has the option of users registering themselves to help add more words. When typing a word in the search bar, a dropbox appears giving suggestions of words closer to the one you are typing.


    After translating a word from Pashto to English, a bar appears at the bottom giving more similar words to search for. On clicking a word in Pashto after the translation is done, it presents users with more meanings of the word.


    The website is lightweight and quick to use, and does not require users to download the Pashto font as it uses a phonetic keyboard.


    What the website can possible add is pronunciations of the words as well as their use in sentences and a virtual keyboard that can assist in typing Pashto words.

    Read the above thread from khyberwatch.com it will help you a lot in Learning Pashto. Here is the first Lesson.

    LESSON NO. 1
    http://www.afghanistans.com/Alphabet.html
    GRAMMAR ; pronoun

    I .......................ZA. WE.....................MONG/J. YOU.SINGULAR....TA

    YOU PLURAL........TASO.HE/SHE...............HAGHA.THEY..................HAGH OI

    VOCABULARY.ZA HALAK/ZANKAY YAM....... I AM A BOY.

    HALAK/ZANKAY..................BOY.

    YAM............................. AM

    communication.

    how are you?............... sanga ye? / saranga ye ?

    I m fine ......................... za kha/sha yam

    GENERAL

    there are two main dialects in pashto language.

    hard dialect.......... spoken in areas like peshawar, mardan, swat, malakand, dir, kohat, paracinar, jalalabad, bajawar, mohmand, khyber,etc mainly in northern part of pashto speaking areas.here the pure pashto words are prounced as kh and g not sh and j if the word comprises the sound. as the word for fine is prounced here as kha not sha. the word for beard is prounced as gira not jira. from the pure pushtu words i mean not words borrowed from other languages .for example. the word khalis is prounced in both the dialects the same as it is not a pure pashto word. and such words are written with arabic khe not pashto khin

    soft dialect......... spoken in SOUTHERN areas like banu, karak, waziristan, baluchistan, qandahar, paktya etc. here the above sounds are prounced as sh and g . fine is sha here and beard is jira here.

    I will try for your orientation of both the dialects or accents.THERE IS NOTHING TO DO SPECIAL .often the symbol/ denotes the difference of dialects. however it is not necessary to learn both the dialects as both are easily mutually intelligible. accents of qandahar and peshawar or mardan are the strandard accents throug out the world.

    remember that both the dialects are written in the same script . thats why you see special pashto letters for khe and ge..
