The Tat language or Tati is a Southwestern Iranian language spoken by the Tats in Azerbaijan and Russia. According to the Ethnologue, it's spoken by 18,000 people in Azerbaijan, 8000 in Iran, and 2300 in Russia.[1] Its written form is related to Middle Persian Pahlavi. There is also a Jewish language called Judeo-Tat that is derived from the Tat language.

Tats refer to themselves as the descendants of the Sassanid Persians.[citation needed]
