The Kurdish for Thank you?

Travel Forums General Talk The Kurdish for Thank you?

Ok, here's a wild one. Does anyone know the correct word for "thank you" in Kurdish?

I see online it is "Spaas"

But when I was at the border I spent time with some Kurdish chaps that were trying to teach me to say something which phonetically sounded like 'Spas-mod-i-cum".

Maybe it was a local dialect or they were adding something to it?

I know it's a long shot but, if someone knows it would be great;)

This is quite a late reply but thought you might still want to get an answer.
I am not a Kurdish speaker but have been around many of them and as far as I know spaas- di-cum is i thank you where as spaas is thanks

Thanks for the reply.

I found "Spass" online in frequent references for thanks you alright. So I went with that. And in the context of phonetics went with "spas modi cum".

Maybe I'll just have to go back to find out for sure

Thanks again
