Laki Dialect Listed as Intangible Heritage

Laki dialect, native to the western province of Lorestan, has been inscribed on the National Intangible Heritage List, the director of the provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization said.
"The dialect was inscribed on Tuesday (Aug. 1) as Lorestan's local language," Gholamreza Soleimani was also quoted by Mehr News Agency as saying.
Laki is a speech variety that is either considered an independent Iranian language or a dialect of Lori or Kurdish language. However, it is lexically similar to Khorramabadi-Lorestani.
The dialect is presently spoken in Ilam, Gilan and areas south of Hamedan, including the towns of Nahavand, Touyserkan, Kouhdasht, Nourabad and Pahla.
The syntax and vocabulary of Laki have been strongly influenced by Lori . The dialect consists of 30,000 words and a large amount of idioms, expressions and proverbs.
