Persian
Yavar Dehghbani, School of languages

Persian is a member of the Indo-Iranian language group, a subgroup of
Indo-European language family. It is considered to be an inflectional
language, and has an SOV constituent order. Modern Persian is spoken
mainly in Iran with a population of 70 million, as well as in other
parts of world especially in USA and Europe. Its close relatives are
other Iranian languages like Tajik, which is spoken in the republic of
Tajkistan, and Afghani Farsi, which is spoken in Afghanistan.

Persian has several dialects like Tehrani, Esfahani, Shirazi, and
Yazdi which all are mutually intelligible.

There are two different styles of Persian. The written style is
phonologically and syntactically more conservative and has not been
changed for at least a century. However, the spoken style has been
changed dramatically, especially in phonology. Traditional
grammarians use the written style in describing the language. But
linguists, as expected, emphasize the spoken style. The spoken style
is economical in phonology and morphology. The grammar of Persian
contains chapters on Phonetics/Phonology, Morphology, Syntax and
sample texts with interlinear translation.
