Query:   Dear fellow linguists,

I am currently working on progressive aspect constructions in Iranian languages/dialects (such as e.g. Lori, Vafsi, Kurdish, Dari, Tajiki, Lari, Balochi, Tati, Talysh etc. etc.) and their neighboring languages (such as e.g. Azari). I am looking for native speakers of these varieties to fill out a questionnaire on this subject. All varieties apart from Persian is of interest. Feel free to fill out and share!

You may find the questionnaire following the link below. You'll have to fill out your answers in a separate document. When responding, don't forget to number the examples so that I can identify the translations. Please send your responses to

This document is a rough translation of the Progressive Questionnaire used in the EUROTYP project (Bertinetto 2000) from English into Persian. However, many changes have been done to the document, including deletion of sentences, adding of new sentences, randomization of the sentence numbers and minor adjustments.

Thank you for your cooperation!
