The paper presents a brief description of the current language situation in Sangan and its impact on the identity formation on the local level. Sangan, an emerging township with around 9,000 inhabitants, is situated in the western hillside of Daptan (Taftan) mountain in Sarḥadd, 50 km to the north of the city of Khash in Iranian Baluchistan. Most of the population of Sangan are Baloches from the Kord tribe, speaking an idiom, which—although claimed to be a Kurdish dialect by the local pundits—has, in fact, nothing to do with proper Kurdish.
