Abstract

It is well known by every student of Iranian, that the Samanid dynasty (10th-11th centuries) contributed greatly to the development and empowerment of the Persian language. Despite a considerable amount of publications on this subject, however, to the best of my knowledge, none of them has enjoyed a linguistic basis.1 When we talk about the history or evolution of a language, we must provide a firm linguistic basis for our claims. This essay aims to demonstrate the contributions of the Samanid Period to the development of Persian from a socio-linguistic point of view, that of "language planning". In my opinion, the Samanids were the first authorities that adopted a scientific and systematic approach to saving the Persian language from a gradual death.
