Variation in Persian Vowel Systems
University of Maryland.
2013 (English)In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 156-169 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The vowel systems employed by different varieties of Persian across time and space exhibit a great deal of variation. This study attempts to describe that variation diachronically, in the spirit of Pisowicz (1985),and synchronically by examining the three major national varieties: Farsi, Dari and Tajik. We interpret the variation encountered through general principles of vowel shifting, as described by Labov (1994), from an Early New Persian baseline. We thus trace the historical development of the vowel systems in the major varieties of Persian spoken in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan, clarifying the relationships among the varieties and the extent of their adherence to such principles.
