From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harzandi (sometimes incorrectly Harzani) is a modern Northwestern Iranian language spoken in the north of the Iranian province of East Azarbaijan, around the village of Harzand. It is closely related to the Talishi (Taleshi) and Karingani dialects.

The major difference between Harzandi and other related dialects is its tendency to use longer vowels. It also has the close vowel 'oe'. Harzandi tends to change the Iranian voiced dental 'd' into a liquid r, e.g. shuran (to go) for shudan (c.f. Middle Persian shudan-).

Some Harzandi words: oev (öv)= Water; voer= Wind, hoev= Sister, isbaa= Dog (c.f. Pashto: spay).
