    اﺷمﺮﺟا is as close as I can transliterate. There is no p in the Arabic Script, for example.

    Nope, I just know how to research

    I'm not 100% sure of how correct it is grammatically, but it is at least correct as I can make it phonetically.

    Forgive me if I'm stupid about this, but Peshmerga is a Kurd term, so wouldn't it easily be something written in arabic?

    Not necessarily, The Arabic language group has several variants from dissimilar ideas of interpretation of a common root, which was Phoenecian writing.

    Turkish, for example is written in Roman Script and not Arabic.

    You are right, by the way that peshmerga is a Kurdish term, used right now for the small militias.

    Then it would be correct to say that they'd write the term in arabic script?

    They should, but I can't figure out how the p phonex is written out because there isn't a P character!

    I just did the best I could.

    Arabic script is VERY hard to translate to Roman and vice versa.

    One question, how close did I get on the conversion within the limits of the phonexes possible?

    By the way, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peshmerga gives the Kurdish use of the word.

    Kurdish is written with both Latin and Arabic script, depending on the dialect/area.

    Regarding the missing "P", as a comparison, count the instances of "F" in "phone". Yup, dat's wright, somme things aren't allweighs spelled the weigh they sound...
