Persian Language/loud and soft

Question
Hi Saeed,

I do hope all is well with you and your family.

Please, how do you categorize sounds and noises in Persian? E.g., somebody may speak in a loud voice or in a soft voice. What words do you use for loud and soft when they relate to sounds, please?

I.e. how can we translate, “He spoke in a loud/soft voice”, please?

Best wishes, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Hi Simon
Hope all is well with you and yours.

We say بلند and آهسته
loud = بلند
soft = آهسته
او بلند حرف می زند
او آهسته حرف می زند

sometimes we use آرام (colloquial: آروم)instead of آهسته.

formal: او آرام حرف می زند
colloquial: آروم حرف می زنه

Best
Saeed
