There is a common verb in Manichaean Parthian texts as well as in both Manichaean and Buddhist Sogdian texts with the phonetic transcription of “āžay_” which according to scholars of Iranian Languages means “to be reborn” in Parthian texts and “to be born” in Sogdian texts. In this regard, the simultaneous existence of this verb with the same form and similar meanings in both languages of Parthian and Sogdian led the scholars to hypothesize that the word has been Sogdian originally and has entered the language of Parthian as a loan word. In this regard, the present study will investigate the presence of this verb in Taleshi Language and explore its different meanings and forms in Taleshi as well as Middle Iranian Languages.
