The Borujerdi dialect is a local dialect spoken in Borujerd city and its surrounding areas in the province of Lorestan in Iran. Borujerdi is more similar to Luri than to the Persian[1] spoken in other parts of Lorestan, being in some respects completely different.[how?]

The Borujerdi dialect is spoken in Borujerd City and more than 200 villages around it. People of , Doorod, , Toyserkan and Kangavar have a very similar accent to Borujerdi and their language may be considered the same as the Borujerdi dialect of Luri.[2] It is estimated that between 0.8 to 1 million people in the provinces of Lorestan, Markazi, Hamadan and Kermanshah speak the Borujerdi dialect with minor differences in their accents.
