The verses mostly written in the do beyti form (a form similar to quatrain) in the dialect of the western and northern regions of Iran are called Fahlaviyāt. Through history, in addition to Farsi as the accepted language all across Iranshahr or Greater Iran and composing poetry in this language, the local and regional languages have had their own literary activity.
