Farsi is the Persian language belonging to the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European language family. Modern Persian is most related to the two ancient languages of Fārs and Persia, a region in southwestern Iran. That’s why the Persian language is mostly known by the name Farsi. Farsi is the language of the Farsa people of Iran who ruled the region between 550 to 330 BCE. In the ancient days, the Persian Empire spoke this language as well as others from India, Russia, Egypt and Mediterranean. It evolved over the centuries to its modern form, and though it retained its name, it has many loanwords of Arabic origin. The Persian language evolved first from Old Persian, the words used by the original Farsa tribe. From the Old Persian, it developed into Middle Persian, the language known during the Sasanian era as Pahlavi. Next is the Classical Persian, with an unclear origin although most of its words come from Farsi. The Modern Persian language spoken today evolved from Old Persian, Middle Persian, and Classical Persian. However, it consists of many non-Iranian words, especially modern technical terms. It incorporated English, German, and French words. It is Arabic, however, that replaced many original Farsi words from today’s Persian language.
Over a hundred million people speak the Persian language. Most of them are in Iran, the country where it originated. Other Farsi-speaking countries include Iraq, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Russia. In some of these countries, they even have official names for Farsi. For instance, there’s Tajik in Tajikistan and Dari in Afghanistan.
Modern Persian has three standard varieties – Iranian Persian, Eastern Persian, and Tajik Persian. As you can probably guess, Iranian Persian is what people in Iran use. Some minorities in the Persian Gulf states and Iraq also speak this language. On the other hand, Eastern Persian is what they call the version of Farsi in Afghanistan. Tajik Persian is what the people of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan use. Each variety also has local dialects that are a bit different than standard Farsi. There’s Herati (Western Afghanistan), Hazaragi (Central Pakistan and Afghanistan), Tehrani (Iran) and Darwazi (Tajikistan and Afghanistan).
