The people of city of  Shiraz are famous for their hospitality. Of course, some jokingly say that the hospitality of the Haj ebrahim Khan’s era has been plagued by people. When Lotf Ali Khan Zand goes to Shiraz to fight Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar after a hard battle, Lotf Ali Khan comes to Shiraz to regain his strength and finds that Hajj Ibrahim Khan is locked in and closed to Kerman. And there after a few months, the siege will be killed by Qajar Agha Mohammad Khan. On this account, some people believe that the Shirazi are well-received and bad. The people of Shiraz, in contrast to Isfahan, who are calculators, spend most of their time in recreation and entertainment. They are less concerned with the consequences of thinking and saving. This is one of the Shirazi’s proverbs, which is a hundred dollars, they eat two hundred tomans, or they love a tree shadow and a pink salmon hookah.

History of city of Shiraz

Shiraz is named in the historical documents “Shirazis” “Tirazis” and Shiraz. Before Islam, Shiraz was a fortress located at the castle of Abu Nasr. It dates back to the Sassanid era before it. During the Bani Umayyad, the city is transferred to the current location at the expense of the destruction of the old capital of the capital of Fars province. Shiraz during the Safavids, Al Boyeh and Zandieh were the capital of Iran. Before the construction of the railway, Shiraz traveled through Iran to southern ports like the Bushehr port, but the role of rail was less.


The name of the city of Shiraz is taken from the name of the castle around the current Shiraz at the site of the castle of Abu Nasr. As it is known, during the construction of this city, the name of this castle is located on the city of Shiraz. In the excavation of Persepolis under the supervision of George Cameron in 1314, the solar system led to the emergence of Elamite clay, with a number of them being referred to a castle called “Tirasis” or “Sharris”. Also, the seals related to the late Sassanid and early Islam were found at the palace of Abu Sasserah. Which contains the name of Shiraz. Ibn Hughul , a Muslim geographer of the 4th century AH, regards the image of Shiraz as a similarity to this land, because, in his words, generally, the grocery was transported to other areas and they did not go anywhere. According to the Tedesco research of Shiraz, the grape center is good.

Dialect of Shiraz

Although the alphanumeric skeleton of the Persian language has become more or less over the centuries in the original text and the main vocabulary of words, but the substructure of words and sentences has undergone many changes under conditions of economic and social conditions. The words that have not been used in the material culture of the people have been abandoned, words have been accepted by some changes, and alien words have been used without change and their foreign form has been used in Persian. Undoubtedly, before a language becomes commonplace as a formal language, local dialects have the same value, but as standard language was created in the land, then other local dialects have their own functional and social values. The vast surface of the country loses.

Although the Shirazi dialect continuously embodies the official language of the country. There is still a difference in the accent with the official accent, and there are still some words, terms, and combinations in this accent that are alien to non-Shiraz. Many of the words used in the Shirazi dialect are recorded with the same common pronunciation and meaning in Shiraz in authentic cultures and are a sign of the correctness of these words.

Here are brief references to some of the literal features and rules of this dialect. In Shirazi’s dialect, it is based on the type of word on various syllables of the Persian language, which changes with the local change of the meaning of the meaning. Of course, this particular issue is not Shiraz’s accent and includes the Persian language. For example:

Aghoo ” with A short” means “father and god” means a mullah or a sijd. The general principle in this pronunciation dialect is as simple as words, which requires the language of Shiraz. Therefore, if we examine all the names, verbs, constraints, etc., we will see this accent, while in each of these categories a fixed structure is followed, wherever the language of Shiraz is required, it is structured For example, most of the words ending in the official Persian to the long vowel (a = A) in the Shirazi dialect are short vowels (o =), such as: Ba , Boo, Bala: Balo, Baba: Babo, Hala: Haloo, Kaka: Kako.

All of these words, alone or in combination with other words, make this change, but words like foot, healing, ending up with a long vowel (a) do not accept change alone, and only in combination with other words, their endings Become short-lived (o). For example, healing, if he or she occurs, can be used to express the long vowel (u) (he) at the end of the word as a recipe.

(medad _ a medadu) (ketab ketaboo) (Gaw-Gawo).

The same is the description of the words in the words of the expression of unpublished moves. After deleting the short vowel (e) (-e-), the word is converted to (ow):

(Name _ _ Namo) (Shishe _ shishu) (khoneh-khono) (Shone _ Shunu)

Regarding the use of verbs, it is customary to follow the official grammar, and again, wherever the language of Shirazi is required, the silhouette has changed.

(Beshkan-boshkun) (mijooyam_ mojouram)

The pronouns (in) and (an) are changed in Shirazi to (E) and (ina) and their sum (oona) .The practical meaning of Me (man), Tara (Tar), Mara (mar)

At the end of the word after the alphabet in the Shirazi dialect are pronounced:

(Chah_ Cha) (Roobah Rabb) (Shah Sha) (ma. Mah)

(b = b) At the end, some words in the two professions in the Shiraz dialect are converted to (ow).

(Ab _ oo) (Tab _ too) (lab _ loo).

In a number of words that are in the middle of a letter, when pronouncing A, it converts to WoW:

(Arzan_Arzun) (Takan-Takun) (Jan_Joon)

In Shiraz, the people of the older neighborhoods still speak the Shirazi dialect, for the rest of the people, for example, the accent of the merchants and the inhabitants of the Sadi gate, the water lips, the gate of the butcher of the house, the gate of the king of Daiollah …. The obvious difference with the accent of the people and the people of other places Has a city.
