An Investigation into the Prehistory of the Persian Language
Fekri-Ershad, J.; Mehrabi, F.
Indian Journal of Applied Linguistics, v32 n1-2 p199-207 Jan-Dec 2006
Persian Languages is one of the widespread branches of Indo-European languages that for long have comprised several important languages. The importance of these languages which lies in the strength of Median, Achamenian, Parthian, and Sasanid Empires during different eras caused a number of researchers to increase their studies about these languages continually and find the origin of each of them through linguistic research. In this article, by showing the relationship among Persian languages, the researchers tried to point out the long history of Persian language and its changes throughout different periods in order to prove the falsity of the hypothesis which states that the origin of Persian language (Dari) is Koshanian language.
