The Persian language
Among the languages of the Indo-European family, Persian (which we currently refer to as «Farsi», the name it is given in both Persian and Arabic) is spoken above all in Iran, Afghanistan (where it is shared by up to 50% of the population) and Tajikistan, as well as various Middle Eastern countries such as Oman, Yemen and the United Arab Emirates. Although estimates differ according to sources, due largely to the so-called Persian Diaspora, there are generally considered to be between 50 and 60 million native speakers.
The linguistic origins are very complex. At all events, it is one of the oldest documented languages; in fact, it is the only neorania language with an extensive literary tradition. Not surprisingly, it has undergone major changes throughout history, has been split into numerous dialects and taken many loanwords from other neighbouring languages. Its historical evolution is so convoluted that the inhabitants of neighbouring regions can communicate with each other in their own language, albeit with certain difficulty, according to the case. In fact, this evolution is so pronounced that some linguists have referred to the language currently spoken in the Islamic Republic of Iran as «neo-Persian».
The Persian alphabet is based on Arabic forms, from which it differs on specific issues. It is written from right to left and has 32 letters, which are represented in a different way according to the position they occupy. Although in appearance it seems completely alien to us, some scholars say that Persian is simpler than some European languages, among other things because it has no articles or grammatical gender and the verbs are more regular. Also, because ultimately they have the same origin, Castilian and Persian have many cognates, words which are written and pronounced in a very similar way and have the same meaning.
As a curiosity, «Iran» is a name that has strong political connotations; the name «Persia» has fallen into disuse internationally since the end of World War II.
