Dialects of Fars

Dialects of Fars

Dialects of Fars are a group of southwestern and northwestern Iranian dialects spoken in the central Fars province. The southwestern dialects can be divided to three family of dialects according to geographical distribution and local names: Southwestern (Lori), South-central (Tajiki or Fars dialects proper) and Southeastern (Larestani). The term "Tajiki" is understood as the Iranian-speaking sedentary populations.[1][2] Under linguistic typology a part of the dialects of the region can be classified as follows [3][4][5][6]:

Southwestern Northwestern
Nominative–accusative Split-Ergative in past transitive constructions
Tajiki Kalani, Lori Kalani, Mamassani Lori, Balyani, Hayati(Dowlat Abadi), Lordarengani, Dezhgahi/Gowri, Richi, Tang Kishi, Zakhoruyei Kuhmareyi: Davani, Dahlei, Kandeyi, Kuzargi, Masarmi, Birovakani, Dadenjani, Dorounaki/Mehboudi, Banafi, Papuni, Dusirani, Somghani, Gorganayi-Gavkoshaki, Mosqani, Nudani; Larestani: Asiri, Aheli, Khonji, Gerrashi/Zeynal Abadi, Kalati (Evaz), Kariyani; Others: Shurabi Koroshi, Sivandi, Abduyi, Korouni

And the extinct old Kazeruni and Old Shirazi (Sherazi) dialects. This group of dialects is not to be confused with the standard Persian, the official language of Iran; and they are not restricted to the present border of Fars province.[2][7]
