ISO 639-3: 

I think your study of languages spoken around the world is very fascinating. Looking at the number of Persian speakers, I saw that it seemed a bit low. I noticed that Tajikistan was not included in the countries of Persian speakers. The Tajik language is categorized under Persian, similar to Dari. Tajikistan has a population of 7.8 million people of which 80% are native Tajik speakers.
