New poll on the Persian language and alphabet

Monday, June 25, 2012

New poll on the right! This is the first one in about four months, and it's about the Persian language and the alphabet you believe it should use. Multiple options are possible.

Persian as of 2012 is officially written in two scripts: Perso-Arabic in Iran and Afghanistan, and Cyrillic in Tajikistan. It is also often written unofficially here and there in the Latin alphabet. Other alphabets I'm not sure - it was written in the Greek alphabet (only unofficially?) from time to time throughout history, not sure whether it was ever written in the Armenian alphabet.


Edit: on a related note, an editorial in the New York Times today also came with a translation in Persian. It's by Nicholas Kristof, who has always shown a fondness for Iran.
