دَرِي– Facts about the Dari language
Dari is the term most often used to refer to one of the Persian (Farsi) dialects spoken in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is sometimes referred to also as Eastern Farsi. In Afghanistan, along with Pashto, Dari is an official language. Approximately 7 million people speak Dari as their first language. Dari is used as the main language of communication between speakers of different languages in Afghanistan.
Dari is a member of the Iranian branch of the Indo-Iranian family of languages and is closely related to Farsi and Tajiki, all three of which are considered to be mutually intelligible. It should be noted that this variety of Persian is distinct from the language used by the Zoroastrians of Northern Iran, which is also referred to as Dari.
Dari is written using a modified form of the Arabic alphabet.
