Well Mr. Bobroff,

Aren't you contradicting yourself. You first restrict the
discussion to people inside Iran and exclude others because
they may have been influenced by another language and now
you are interested in Afghan and Tajik data!? Don't you
think that there is a chance that Tajiks, for example, would
have probably been infected by the abbreviation conventions of
other languages?
