چرا با تکرار نام مجعول #دریای_خزر خودزنی می‌کنید؟

اون دریایی که بهش میگید دریای خزر، در ایران باستان #دریای_تپورستان نام داشت. بعد از اسلام، تپورستان معرب شد و به طبرستان تغییر نام پیدا کرد. در تمام کتاب‌های جغرافیای تاریخی، نام این دریا، #دریای_طبرستان، #دریای_مازندران
و در برخی منابع دیگه #دریای_گیلان و گاهی #دریای_قزوین ثبت شده. همچنین در عرف بین‌الملل، امروز تمام دنیا به این دریا میگه #دریای_کاسپین. کاسپین برگرفته از نام قوم کاسپی‌هاست که قدیمی‌ترین ایرانیان ساکن در کنار این دریا بودند و دست‌کم سه‌هزار سال پیش در اون‌جا سکونت داشتند.
کاسپی‌ها آریایی بودند و بعدها به مناطق دیگه از جمله قزوین کوچ کردند. نام شهر قزوین برگرفته از نام این قوم هست و قزوین معرب‌شدهٔ کاسپین هست.

این وسط خزرها کی بودن؟ یه قوم وحشی از نژاد اوغوز که قرن ششم میلادی از حوالی مغولستان به شمال قفقاز کوچ کردن و مدتی اون‌جا ساکن شدند.

We have a shift to on-shore westerly wind in the Horn of Africa region today, which, I confess means little to me beyond being a new thing in the data. But it seems significant, as there is more water over the sea.

Today's rainfall/cyclone forecasts for the region follow.
Here's a view from this afternoon & the direction of travel is pretty stable. For me onshore winds bringing wet air towards mountains means lots more rain. If anyone is aware of the usual timing of this switch I would be interested.
Here are African 10-Day Accumulated rain forecasts. All of which now show the impact of the two Cyclones which are now in the forecast window.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).
