This paper aims to explore and describe Ardestani dialect. Ardestan
is located in the northeast of Isfahan and is neighbors with cities of
Garmsar, foothills of Isfahan, Nain, Natanz, Aran and Bidgol.
Ardestani is a part of an analogous group of dialect sets in central Iran.
Among the various dialects of central Iran, Ardestani, along with
Anaraki, Behdini, Naini, Zefrei,
and the Jewš of Yazd and Kerman
dialects, is categorized as southeastern dialect. Dialects of Central Iran
themselves are a part of larger pool known as western Iranian dialects.
Ardestani, in terms of phonetics, is one of the most sophisticated
and complex of Iranian dialects; unfortunately, except two other
foreign papers, by Harold Bailey and Pierre Lecoq, no other notable or
remarkable works have ever been done about it. In this study, the
Ardestani dialect has been investigated and described in phonetical,
morphological and syntactic contexts
