The Persian language (Farsi, Darī) – characteristics and spread

Farsi is the most important Indo-European language in south-western Asia, and belongs to the Iranian branch of the Indo-European language family. Farsi is the official language of Iran, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.

Farsi has about seventy million native speakers, and another sixty million speak Farsi as a second language. Approximately thirty-five to forty million native speakers live in Iran, fifteen million in Afghanistan, and another fifteen million in Central Asia, especially in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and on the Indian subcontinent. There are also sizeable Farsi-speaking communities in Iraq and the Gulf States, especially Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.

Farsi is traditionally known as Persian in European languages, named after the historic headquarters of the ancient Persian kings, the present province of Fārs (Pārs) in the south of Iran. The proper name of the language is Pārsī, or Fārsī since the Arab-Islamic conquest of Persia as Arabic does not have the [p] consonant. Persian developed into the most important language of scholarship and literature of the eastern Islamic world in the Middle Ages, and was also known as Fārsī-e Darbārī or just Darī, meaning the language of the Royal Court. This led to the most commonly used name for the language as used in Afghanistan, India, and Central Asia – Darī.
