English to Baluchi translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: "owl" and "owls"
I am busy constructing a site for Owlhaven, an over 3000 item collection of owl objects in different media from all over the world, and want to compile a glossary of how these two words are
rendered in as many different languages as possible. PLEASE help! Thank you.

Boom


Explanation:
Hello owlhaven,
In Arabic: Boom (wihtout article) or al-Boom (with article). There is no plural for owl in Arabic, however we may say "Toyour al-boom" which means "the birds of the owl".
In Baluchi, I think we use the same name as in Arabic.
Thanx.
