Ep. 04 Persian Farsi, Dari, and Tajik – one language or three?
In this episode of Language Matters, we delve into a complex and sensitive group of languages, including Persian Farsi, Dari, and Tajik. DLS’ very own Language Training Supervisor and native Dari speaker born in Afghanistan, Faraidoon Saadat, joins us along with Persian Farsi speaker and Iran native, Fatemeh Towhidi. Together, we discuss the regions in which the various languages are spoken and how the writing systems differ. We then compare and contrast Persian Farsi and Dari, specifically, discussing perceptions of the differences among varying groups of speakers and how aspects of the two languages can be found in others!
