member of the Iranian branch of the Indo-Iranian language
family; it is the official language of Iran. It is most closely related to
Middle and Old Persian, former languages of the region of Fars ("Persia") in
southwestern Iran. Modern Persian is thus called Farsi by native speakers.
Written in Arabic characters, modern Persian also has many Arabic loanwords
and an extensive literature. (Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.)
