Parsi (prp-prp) = 6b* (Threatened).

Parsi [prp] is listed in E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24 as an Iranian language of the Parsis of (predominantly) Gujarat and Maharashtra in India. These Parsis do not retain an Iranian language ( Jesse S. Palsetia 2001 ), but speak a variety of Gujarati with some Iranian lexical material not otherwise present in Gujarati ( Bharati Modi 2011 , S. N. Gajendragadkar 1974 ). (A distinct Iranian ancestral language does not appear to be attested from earlier times either ( George A. Grierson 1916 , S. N. Gajendragadkar 1974 ).) Parsi is accurately listed as a dialect of Gujarati [guj], leaving the Parsi [prp] entry spurious. See also: Gujarati [guj].
