    There seems to be very little difference between the pronunciation for koshtaen and kaeshtaen for the verbs ‘to kill’ and ‘to plant.’ How do you tell which one is which?

      First one is to kill, second one is to plant

      I hope that this is helpful in understanding the difference: koshtan has the same “o” sound as in implode while kashtan has a similar “a” pronunciation as in hobbit.

    why do we translate “two knives” into ” dou chaghou-e-” and not into “two chaghou” ?

      I was also wondering that, as well as why in number 9, it is ‘abi am’ instead of just ‘abim’

    exuse me but how do you say this sentence when there are more than one than one object? “This short girl gave a red flower to her friend”

    here, the indirect object is made with “beh”. So: Ân dokhtar e ghad kutâh gol e ghermezi râ beh dustash dâd.
