Talysh, a new language now available

May 23, 2017

We're glad to announce that we've added a new language to our list: Talysh.

With about 900,000 speakers, the Talysh is a Northwestern Iranian language and the southern regions of Azerbaijan and includes many dialects usually divided into three main clusters: Northern, Central and Southern. The living language most closely related to the Talysh language is Tati. Talyshi also shares many features and structures with Zazaki, now spoken in Turkey, and the Caspian languages and Semnani of Iran. The Talysh language is classified as "vulnerable" by UNESCO's Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger.

We hope you'll enjoy this new addition to Forvo. You can check out the pronunciations here: forvo.com/languages/tly
