2005 (English)In: The Role of the State in West Asia, 2005, 191- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This article describes language policies in Iran and Pakistan affecting the Balochi language spoken in these two countries. It also describes Persian substrate phenomena in one particular Balochi dialect spoken in Iran and argues that the grammatical structure of a particular language or dialect can give a better understanding of migrations in the past. Finally the issue of revitalisation versus language death is discussed.
