About the Language
Persian (called Farsi by Iranian speakers) is spoken by approximately 110 million people, predominantly in Iran and parts of Afghanistan and Tajikistan. The language's roots stretch back to the 6th century through Middle Persian, the religious and literary language of Sassanid Persia, to Old Persian, the language of the Achaemenid Persian Empire. It takes its name from the capital of the Achaemenid Empire, Persis, which was also called Fars or Pars.
