— New Persian: A richly expressive means of communication

New (or Modern) Persian is one of members of a great family of Iranian languages spoken across Asia in both ancient and modern times.

Its linguistic ancestry is as diverse and complex as that of English, and this has made it just as richly expressive as a means of communication. The core of the language has been inherited from the language of pre-Islamic Sassanid Iran, itself a descendant of the old Persian of the Achaemenids. Over the centuries, it has been enriched by many borrowings from other languages it has encountered, notably Arabic and, to a lesser extent, Turkish, Mongolian, and more recently European languages.

In the period immediately before the Arab conquests, the most important languages in Iran were Middle Persian and Parthian (the latter used in the eastern parts of the Iranian world). Except among some diehard Zoroastrians, who compiled in the ninth century CE, a number of texts in what is called “Pahlavi” (a form of Middle Persian written in a script derived from Aramaic), little effort was made to keep these alive as written languages.
