Dari is one of the official languages of Afghanistan along with Pashto. It shares a long literary history, both classical and modern, with the Persian (Farsi) of Iran, and the Tajik of Tajikistan, but over the centuries the languages have been split by politics and geography. Dari is written in a modified form of the Arabic script, but it has been transliterated here into the roman alphabet. This title contains a vast array of indispensable words supplying travelers and those working in Afghanistan with the resources needed to communicate effectively. Nicholas Awde is an author and linguist specializing in the Caucasus, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa. Saeid Davatolhagh is an independent researcher with a doctorate degree in physics from Ohio State University. He currently lives in London. Sami Aziz is coordinator of the Afghan Association of London.
