Emergence of Persian literature
A language is primarily a means of communication between its speakers, but language has other functions and serves other purposes as well.

The emergence of Persian language
A glance at how the Persian language emerged shows that Old Persian gradually evolved into Middle Persian by shedding its nominal inflection and simplifying its verbal system as well as discarding grammatical gender distinction and the dual.

Persian palatial architecture was a self-consciously imperial architecture that united and subsumed numerous architectural and visual traditions, creating unity out of complexity.

Persian pottery in first global age
