Bashkardi or Bashagerdi is a Southwestern Iranian language[3][4] spoken in the southeast of Iran in the provinces of Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan, and Hormozgan. The language is closely related to Larestani and Kumzari languages, it forms a transitional dialect group to northwestern Iranian Balochi, due to intense areal contact, with South Bashkardi being more divergent from its southwestern Iranian neighbours than North Bashkardi.[5]
