Title: Nota etimologica sul curdo bûmelerze
Authors: Guizzo, Daniele
Issue Date: 2010

Abstract: The object of this paper is the study of the etimology of the Kurdish word bûmelerze given by Cabolov in his Ėtimologičeskij slovar' kurdskogo jazyka. The Russian scholar assumed that this word, meaning "earthquake", is a kind of artificial compound, produced in a linguistically Kurdish milieu by means of two Persian lexical items. In this work I try to demonstrate that the use of bûm "earth" and bûmelerze "earthquake" is widespread in many western Iranian varieties, being in fact an isogloss in a large part of ancient and modern western Iran.
