Does anyone have any recommendations for materials for learning Pahlavi / Middle Persian?

Ressources for Middle Persian are really scarce.

This website has a few lessons (one of them is called 'going out', I didn't know there were night clubs at the time of the Sasanians :mrgreen:).

http://www.parsig.org/

However I'm not sure if the language presented is authentic middle-persian or if it's a simplified version they're trying to bring back to life (they seem to have a sort of revival project).

Here are two slang lexicons.

Very useful for learners past an intermediate level interested in colloquial Tehrani persian.

It's mostly in Afghan Persian with a couple Pashto shows. Anyway I think it would be good listening resource for Afghan Persian :mrgreen:

This Facebook page no longer seems to be updated, but scrolling through is a great resource for learning Persian idioms paired with their English equivalents.

McKenzie's Pahlavi dictionary (online here) is indispensable.

Hi
where can i find some online site or downloadable soft which will translate words from english to farsi with transliteration or vowels clearly depicted. I am a beginning learner and cannot figure out words without transliteration/romanization.

Many dictionaries such as Hayyim's give transliteration. The best online English-Persian dictionary, in my opinion, is Farsi123, which doesn't give transliteration, but you can always copy words from there (or anywhere) into Hayyim's dictionary and get the transliteration. I would also recommend you buy Yavar Dehghani's Persian-English/English-Persian Learner's Dictionary which lists all words with Persian spelling, Roman transliteration, and English translation. The nice thing is that the Persian-English section is organized by transliteration, so you can look up Persian words without knowing how to spell them. I think it's one of the most useful dictionaries for total beginners.
Please correct my mistakes in any language.

Also, is there a place online where I can read free persian children stories that are text-based, not image-based? (if I can highlight, copy, and paste text directly into dictionaries/translations, I can learn much faster than if a photocopy of the whole page is posted). Thanks!
