Qashqai (Qaşqay dili / قشقاى ديلى)

Qashqai is a member of the Western Oghuz branch of the Turkic language family spoken by about 1.5 million people mainly in the Fars region of Iran. The Qashqai people also live in the provinces of Khuzestan, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad, Chaharmahal, Bakhtiari, Bushehr and southern Isfahan. Qashqai is considered a dialect of Azerbaijani by some linguists, and a separate language closely related to Azerbaijani by others.

Qashqai can be written with a version of the Perso-Arabic script, though rarely is.
