Persian Language History

The Persian language covers a vast territory beyond Transoxiana, Central Asia, India, Afghanistan, Asia Minor and the Balkans. Persian is one of the oldest languages ​​in the world and belongs to the "Indo-Iranian" group, which includes all the languages ​​of the Indian subcontinent, Iran and Europe. Currently, more than 50 percent of the population of Iran, 25 percent of the population of Afghanistan and about 2 million of the population of Pakistan speak Persian. “Persian language" was the main language of the Achaemenid dynasty, which today is called "ancient Persian". The ancient Persian language underwent several changes over the past several centuries to become Middle Persian, also known as the "Pahlavi language". The Middle Persian language underwent changes with the arrival of Islam in Iran, and it was renamed "Dari Persian". The language of today's Iranians is a continuation of Dari Persian, which is called "Modern Persian" and its alphabet is largely identical to the Arabic alphabet.
