Bakhtiari Dialect

Bakhtiari dialect is a dialect of Southern Luri spoken by Bakhtiari people in Chaharmahal-o-Bakhtiari, Bushehr, eastern Khuzestan and parts of Isfahan and Lorestan provinces. It is closely related to the Boir-A?mad?, Kohg?l?ya, and Mamasan? dialects in northwestern Fars. These dialects, together with the Lori dialects of Lorestan (e.g. Khorramabadi dialect), are referred to as the "Perside" southern Zagros group, or Lori dialects. Luri and Bakhtiari are much more closely related to Persian, than Kurdish."[3]

Bakhtiari could be seen as a transitional idiom between Kurdish and Persian.[4]
