I forgot to mention I took out the Hystory section because I couldn't find any resources other than the Kurdish Blog showing the fact or the existence of the sultani tropical kurdish calendar, please provide me with more sources for the fact so we can add it to the article! --Flavallee (talk) 11:06, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

From Ángel García

 The chapter "The Kurdish Days of the Week" has a lot of mistakes.
  ´Arabic "yaumu s-sabt", not "Sabbath".
  Roman calendar in 321 AD, not BC.
  (the Iranian language in Arsakidian Persia) - not Sasanian. Ardashîr took power only in 221 AD.
  "the ´Arab conquest in AD 621" is wrong. The battles were in 637 and in 642.
  "(Friday) which is a free day of work for many Muslim cultures in Mideast." - Muslim, not in other states.
  The next two phrases need complete reformulating. 
  "Jemu which is Avestay world Jem that have survived..." is not English plus wrong. Gumu´ah is normal ´Arabic for "gathering, Friday" from root gama´a "he collected, gathered".

  I forgot: last line SéKshembe, CHúwÂrshembe, PéKshembe without K's - these are wrong. García (talk) 21:04, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
