Also called: Gabar; Gabri; Yazdi

Iranian language spoken by between 8,000 and 15,000 in Iran, in the regions of Yazd and Kerman.
Dari-Zoroastrian is highly different from Persian, coming closer to Gilaki, Balochi and Gorani.
As the name suggests, Dari-Zoroastrian is the traditional language of Zoroastrians. It does not have a writing system.
Dari-Zoroastrian is now losing ground, as its speakers prefer picking up the majority language of their cities, which is Persian.
