Influences: Loanwords from Sogdian[edit]

I think the "Sogdian loanwords in Persian" should be mentioned in the "Influences" section. Please see: SOGDIAN LANGUAGE i. Loanwords in Persian – Encyclopædia Iranica. --Zyma (talk) 23:37, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Agglutination[edit]

Persian is not an Agglutinative language, as this article claims. Indo-European languages are not agglutinative. They may use, to some degree, agglutinative aspects (as Persian does), but - by definition - Persian is not agglutinative. The sources used to support this claim are either not used properly or they represent minority oppinions and not the mainstream. --Lysozym (talk) 09:09, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Tajik text?[edit]

In the section "Examples", we have the sentence "Please note that the Tajik text is different from that of the Iranian Persian." Can someone please verify whether this is correct? (An editor had added a sentence asserting that the text is actually the same; in that case, the sentence asserting a difference should be removed.) Thanks, JBL (talk) 03:19, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

User Negahbaan has kindly confirmed that the text is the same, and so I have removed the erroneous sentence. --JBL (talk) 15:20, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
