Little is known of the Luri dialect of Khurramabad, but
Professor Amanolahi of Shiraz University has collected various
stories from his native town in the local language. Together with
Wheeler Thackston of Harvard he has prepared a compact volume
covering the tales in transcription, translations into English, a
short grammatical sketch, and a Luri-English vocabulary (Luristan
is a province of western Iran in the Zagros Mountains). The
traditional grammatical analysis of the dialect is easy to follow
and the translations of both poetry and prose closely follow the
original, a tribute to the close collaboration of the two scholars.
This unique volume will be of great interest to students of the
folklore, linguistics, and customs of the inhabitants of the center
