Farsi, otherwise known as Persian, is spoken in Iran. The variety of Persian spoken in Tajikistan is referred to as Tajik; and the variety spoken in Afghanistan is referred to as Dari. These three varieties are all mutually intelligible.
Along with other Iranian languages, Farsi is member of the Indo-European language group which also includes other branches such as Celtic, Germanic, Balto-Slavic and Indo-Aryan. Farsi, in Iran, is written using a right-to-left Persian script that is similar to the Arabic script.
Farsi loanwords to English include “assassin”, “balcony”, “bazaar”, “caviar” and “kiosk”. The word for “thank you” in Farsi is borrowed from French: “merci”.
