In this site there should be an approach in the dialect of the people in this region and provide a lexicon  which is being shown with respect to :  words , grammar , phonology , proverbs and slang statements which are collected during the periods of time. From the point of familiarity to this dialect as my own mother tongue , I chose Vazvan dialect as a center for collecting the dialects of central Iran dialects , as I didn't see any written document which shows the manifestation for Markazi dialects of Iran . and in an analytic approach with the dialects spoken in adjacent places  .In addition to recalling the archaic and old words that people used in the past , I'm trying to mention the current  version now is being in use . The aim of such a collection is to preserve and present such  dialects which are now  going to be diminished so fast , and there would be no way in recalling them in the near future

Classification of the central Iranian dialects

The dialects are divided into six major categories. That four of them are the main . They also both geographically and because of their resemblance to the dialects are in a group [7] :

  • Northeastern dialects, mainly in the range between Kashan and Natanz are common and their number is very high. of the most important of the Jewish dialects of Kashan, dialect Arani, Ghahrood, Jvshqany , Abyaneh , the Farizandi, Vzvany , Yrndy, Meimeh a hand, a Kshh, Tari , Natanz , Abvzydabady and Badrvdy can be named.
  • Southwestern dialects: dialects are dialects in the southwest of and adjacent areas are common. of these dialects can Kfrvny, Gzy, a century, the Jewish dialect of Varzaneh and cited.
  • Eastern dialects: in this ancient dialect of Yazd and Kerman, which now only by Zoroastrians and Jews are talking about this city and dialect and a door or Gbry Bhdyny also have known the place. other dialects of this language Naini , dialect Anaraki , dialect Ardestani and a dialect is Zefreh.

Central Iranian, or Central Iran, is a group of Western Iranian languages spoken in villages and towns of central Iran, mostly in Markazi and Isfahan provinces. They are typically considered "dialects" of Persian, and many are giving way to Persian among the younger generations

There is not an evidenced written book or text which shows the history of the dialect in this region especially Vazvan , but with considering the location of this  place  in northern part of Isfahan and the situation of the other cities with this place , anyone could say that the dialect is based on Iranian  Markazi dialects even though mostly mistaken with the Yazd dialects too for some similarities 

There could be said that  this dialect is considered as a multi-dialect consisting of Pahlavid, Zoroastiran and Dari  language, also the dialect in Vazvan region is considered to be as Dari, now spoken in province Yazd , with the dialect of  Dari or Gabri of Iran, a language of the Central Iranian sub-group, spoken in some Zoroastrian communities, but it should not be confused  with Dari of Afghanistan.We should consider that the Iranian and Afghan dialects of Persian are highly mutually intelligible, with differences found primarily in the vocabulary and phonology.

Parsi is a Northwestern Iranian spoken by a million Zoroastrians in Iran, India, and neighboring countries. The Iranian and Indian varieties separated 600–700 years ago, and are only mutually intelligible with difficulty. The Indian variety is known as Parsi, after the Parsis (lit. 'Persians') who speak it, while the Iranian variety is distinguished as Parsi-Dari or even Dari, though it is distinct from the more conservative Zoroastrian Dari language also spoken in Iran, and which is also spoken in India by more recent Irani Zoroastrian immigrants

Category of the Iran Markazi Dialects

Vazvan dialect can be considered in the catagory of one of the subdivisions of  six central dialects in Iran which is grouped to four devided dialects from four geographical sides , east , west , south and north of the road from Isfahan to Qom. Other two groups can be considered from the similarities to the four above groups .

     North western dialects : Those of being in use in the west of Isfahan to Qom road , Mahallati, Khonsari and Vanshani in use now is the based group .  from Isfahan province and the dialects based on

North eastern dialects : Mostly aroun Kashan and Natanz is spoken , with so many users . most popular of them Kashan jews and Natanz which is around Kashan  like Ghohrudi , Jowsheqani , Abyane , Ferizandy , yarandi , Meime , Soyee , Keshe , Tari, Natanzi , Abu zei abadi . and Badrudi .

 South western dialects: Those of being in use in Esfahan and nearby regions . Kefruny , Gazi , Sedeyi , varzane and Isfahan Jews dialects are in this group.

south eastern dialects:Those of old  dialects of Yazd and Kerman which is now only in use by Zoroastrians and Jews of these provinces . these are considired as Behdini and Dari or Gabri . other dialects of this group are Naini, Anaraki , Ardestani and Zafrei

 Kaviri dialects : Is located in the east of Iran between two main Kavirs .between Khorasan and Esfahan province which consist of Khori and Fervi and Mehrjani dialects .

 Tafresh dialects :spoken in the region in east of Hamedan and south of Saveh . This group consists of Vafsi , Tafreshi , Ashtiani , Kohaki , Amrei , vidari and Alviri .

phonologically this dialect is so much similar to the Persian language  . with " cvcv" symbolically referred as  a consonant and vowel  representation .

There is not any consonant cluster in this dialect as it is the characteristics of Persian languages and dialects . In English it is shown in some words as “ close , clean , please , plural , etc. “ and the phonology representation for such words  is “ ccvvc” but In Vazvan dialect there has not been shown such any words that represent phonologically this  rule . Example  , “ nemidunam= nizunon “  which are both equal in meaning in Persian .” I don’t know “ have the same phonological symbols  as “ cvcv”

The cuisine of Kashmir is famous for its delectable vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes. The style of cooking is different for Hindus and Muslims. Traditional Kashmiri food includes dum aloo (boiled potatoes with heavy amounts of spice), tzaman (a solid cottage cheese), rogan josh (lamb cooked in heavy spices), zaam dod (curd), yakhayn (lamb cooked in mild spices), hakh (a spinach-like leaf), rista-gushtava (minced meat balls in tomato and curd curry) and of course rice, the staple food of Asian cultures.

The first main influence on the cuisine was the food of the Kashmiri Pandits. Kashmiri Pandit cuisine usually uses yoghurt and turmeric, and does not use onion and garlic. The cuisine was then influenced by the people who invaded with Timur from the area of modern Uzbekistan, as well as by Persian, and Afghan cultures.

The traditional 36-course wazwan is considered the height of Kashmiri cuisine. Probably no other cuisine in the world has so many courses. The preparation is considered an art and is traditionally done by a vasta waza, or head chef, with the assistance of a court of wazas, or chefs. The wazwan is most often prepared for a big event, especially marriages. One concern about wazwans is that much of the food has to be thrown out.

Guests are grouped into fours for the serving of the wazwan. The meal begins with a ritual washing of hands as a jug and basin called the Tash-t-Nari are passed among the guests. A large serving dish piled high with heaps of rice, decorated and quartered by four seekh kababs (kebabs), four pieces of methi korma (a mild curry made with yoghurt), two tabak maaz, sides of barbecued ribs, one safed murg, one zafrani murg, along with other foods. The meal ends with the gushtaba.
