About the Afghan Language Dari

Dari (Persian: دری) is the official name for the Persian code spoken in Afghanistan and is a synonymous expression for Parsi.

Origin of the term "Dari"

There are different opinions about the origin of the term Dari. The majority of scholars believe that Dari pertains to the Persian word darbār, meaning "Court", as it was the formal code of the Sassanids. This opinion is supported by medieval sources and early Islamic historians.

Geographical distribution

In Afghanistan Dari is also known as Farsi or Parsi. These different names have been chosen synonymously to refer to the spoken code.

Iranian languages are popular code in Central Asia both by native speakers and as trade languages. Many of these languages are frequently mutually intelligible.

Dari is a branch of the Indo-Iranian (Indo-Aryan) languages, a subfamily of the Indo-European languages. There are 3 different phases in the development of Indo-Iranian languages: Old, Middle, and Modern.[citation needed] Old Dari/Farsi and the Avestan code represents the older stage of development and were spoken in historic Bactria. The Avestan code is known as Avestan because the sacred scriptures of Zoroastrianism, Avesta, were created in this aged shape. Avestan died out lengthy before the advent of Islam and except for scriptural employ not much has stayed of it. Old Dari, nonetheless, survived and there are numerous created records of older Dari, in cuneiform called Maikhi, in Khorasan.[citation needed] Old Dari was spoken until around the 3rd century BC. It was a very inflected code.

Dari is the main code of Afghanistan, and is spoken in the northern and western components, and the capital, Kabul, in the east. Approximately 70% of the population of Afghanistan are native speakers.

Also, due to big emigration from Afghanistan, there are thousands of Dari speakers all over the world, notably in North America, Australia and numerous European nations. There are little minority groups of Dari speakers in Pakistan (primarily in NWFP).


The syntax of Dari refuses to vary greatly from Iran's Persian. The strain highlight in Dari is different, but simply because prominent because those in Iran's Persian. To mark attribution, spoken Dari utilizes the object marker -ra. The vowel program moreover differs from that of Iranian Persian, to some degree.

In addition, the main grammatical difference is the use of continuous tense. In Iran's Persian, the verb “to have” (Persian: dāshtan) is chosen before any different verb to indicate a continuous action. While in Dari, the expression "dar hālé" (at when of), is selected with all the easy present or previous tense to express a continuous state. However, some Dari speakers in Afghanistan have newly adopted the structure employed by Iranians.


Dari was the official code of the Sassanids' court. It appeared as the code of the Persians after the beat of the Parthians by Ardeshir I in 226 CE. Dari is equally referred to Middle Persian, or to a classic fashion of Persian code. The expression "middle" Persian suggests the existence of an Old Persian along with a New Persian. Old Persian was the code of the Achaemenids, which was overshadowed by Greek after the conquests of Alexander the Great.

The Muslim conquests broke the continued chain of the Persian code and Arabic (for 2 100 years, i.e. 7–8 century CE) became the official code. The Persians, but, didn't forget their own code and small by small, Middle Persian was being shaped into New Persian (or Dari) was influenced by Arabic loanwords and was created in the Arabic script. New Persian (or Dari) became the key code of individuals of Transoxiana and Khorasan in 9th century, and later, it became common in different components of Iran, plus non-Iranian areas such because India, and Anatolia . Therefore, Transoxiana and Khorasan are known by several as the birthplace of Persian code and Persian literature.

The Old, Middle, and New Persian are and represent the same code at 3 stages of its history. The New Persian code is what exactly is called now as Farsi or Dari.
