Book review

The present work provides a description of the standardization process of Persian orthography since the introduction of the Arabic alphabet, with a focus on this process in modern times (1850-2000). Using theories related to orthography standardization as its background, this work seeks an explanation for the prolonged standardization process of Persian orthography, and presents the frameworks within which this standardization has been carried out. The case of Persian orthography can contribute to the understanding of the complex mechanism involved in script reforms, especially when an already established script with a long tradition of written language is the target. It will shed some light on the role of non-linguistic factors in script reforms, and will be especially useful to scholars dealing with script modernization in developing countries, or anyone else who may be interested in script reforms.
