Linguistic Impact of Illkhanate Rule
In his History of Tabriz, Mustawfi writes that the people of Tabriz had spoken Pahalavi Persian before the arrival of the Mongols but that during Illkhanate rule they had adopted Adhari Turkish. He mentions further that the people of Maragha, Zanjan and Ardabil had had their own Persian dialects.
