Mazandarani is a northwestern Iranian language spoken in Mazandaran
Gīlān (استان گیلان) and
Golestan (استان گلستان) provinces
in the northwest of Iran by some 3.3 million people. Mazandarani is
also known as Tabäri (تبری) and has a number of different dialects, including
Gorgani, Ghadikolahi and Palani, and is
closely related to Gilaki.
Mazandarani has a rich literary heritage which was produced mainly
between the 10th and 15th centuries when Mazandaran was independent
or semi-independent. During the 17th century Mazandarani was largely
replaced by Persian as the language of literature and administration.
