A Reference Grammar of the Lari Language with Particular Reference to the Aheli Dialect



My study aims to provide a reference grammar of Aheli, a dialect of the Lari language, which is predominantly spoken in Ahel city in the south of Iran. The dialect is spoken by nearly 5000 people as a mother tongue. The Lari language, a SW Iranian language, has been classified as a 'definitely endangered language' which is inadequately studied in recent years.
