English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Persian دری(darī), of disputed origin, probably from دربار(darbār, royal court). The use of the name for the Afghan dialect of Persian in English is a recent development, the language formerly being known as Persian or Afghan Persian to English speakers.

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Dari

  1. A variety of Middle Persian, the court language of the late Sassanid period and of classical Persian poetry.
  2. The dialect of the Persian language as spoken natively by approximately one-half of the population in Afghanistan and serves as the interethnic lingua franca for the vast majority of the population; also referred to as Eastern Persian, Afghan Persian, or simply Persian.
  3. A language of the Central Iranian family spoken by up to 15,000 people (mostly Zoroastrians) in the Yazd and Kerman areas, also known as Gabri or Gabar.
