Judæo-Iranian languages

The Judæo-Iranian languages include a number of related Jewish languages spoken throughout the formerly extensive realm of the Persian Empire, usually including all the Jewish Iranian languages:
* Dzhidi (literary Judæo-Persian)
* Bukhori (Judæo-Bukharic, Judæo-Tajik, the Jewish language of the distinctive Jewish community centered in Bukhara)
* Judæo-Golpaygani (the Judæo-Persian language traditionally spoken in the environs of Gulpaigan and western Isfahan Province, Iran)
* Judæo-Yazdi (spoken in the environs of Yazd and elsewhere in Yazd Province, in central Iran)
* Judæo-Kermani (spoken in Kerman and elsewhere in Kerman Province, in south-central Iran)
* Judæo-Shirazi (spoken in Shiraz and elsewhere in Fars Province, in southwestern Iran)
* Judæo-Esfahani (spoken in Isfahan and environs, as well as elsewhere in central and southern Isfahan Province, Iran)
* Judæo-Hamedani (spoken in Hamadan and elsewhere in Hamadan Province, in western Iran)
* Judæo-Kashani (spoken in Kashan and elsewhere in northern Isfahan Province, in western Iran)
* Judæo-Borujerdi (spoken in Borujerd and elsewhere in Lorestan Province, in western Iran)
* Judæo-Nehevandi (spoken in Nahavand and elsewhere in northern Hamadan Province, in western Iran)
* Judæo-Khunsari (spoken in Khansar and elsewhere in far-western Isfahan Province, in western Iran)
* Juhuri (Judæo-Tat)
* Judæo-Kurdish (not to be confused with several Jewish Neo-Aramaic languages which are also sometimes called "Judeo-Kurdish")

Like most Jewish languages, all the Judæo-Iranian languages contain great numbers of Hebrew loanwords, and are written using variations of the Hebrew alphabet.
