Name Golestan for Semitic Aram’s Son Hul All Over Northwestern Iran First Settlers Then Language of Japhetic Madai


Northwestern Iran, where the Zagros and Alborz mountain ranges meet, during the Ice Age was the land of Hul (a son of Aram), for him many place names there in the region of Gulistan or Golestan, but when the ice Age ended, the language of the japhethite (indo european) Madai (Medes) took over, a dialect of it Mazanderani spoken along the southern shore of the Caspian Sea with words interestingly almost the same as in english, such as neo (new), gat (great), better (better), bine (been), bien (being), mong (moon), deter (daughter), and gow (cow).
