Persian Language/Can we translate kasreh by 'in' sometimes?


Hi Saeed,

Greetings to you and yours from sunny Izmir!

این نظام حکومتی که در قانون اساسی مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ (و بازنگری ۱۳۶۸) تشریح شده‌است
In مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ and بازنگری ۱۳۶۸, I understand that there a kasre after the first word in each case. Is the best translation for this kasre "in" in both cases? So:
قانون اساسی مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ = the constitution enacted in 1353 (Shamsi) and
بازنگری ۱۳۶۸ = the review in 1348 (Shamsi)

Best wishes, and many thanks,


Hi Dera Simon,
Yes, it is correct.
مصوّبِ ۱۳۵۸ = مصوب در 1358
بازنگری ۱۳۶۸ = بازنگری شده در 1368
تصویب = enact
مصوب شده - تصویب شده = enacted
تصویب شده در = enacted in
در = in

My Best
