Sangsari is an Iranian language spoken in the Semnan province of Iran mainly in the Sangsar (Mahdi Shehr) town and in a several surrounding villages. Though Sangesari has traditionally been included in a group of dialects together with Sorkhei, Lasgerdi, Biyabunaki, Aftari, their speakers cannot understand each other. This gives grounds to claim that Sangesari is an independent Northwest Iranian language. [http://language.babaev.net/tree/iran/sangesari]
