Bashkardi or Bashagerdi is a southwestern Iranian language2 spoken in the southeast of Iran in the provinces of Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan, and Hormozgan. Close to Larestani and Kumzari, it forms a transitional dialect group to northwestern Iranian Balochi, due to intense areal contact, with South Bashkardi being more divergent from its western (southwestern Iranian) neighbours than North Bashkardi.3
