Summary/Abstract: In general, it has been known for a long time that the Khalaj language is in danger of extinction. On the other hand, several studies have to be done in order to determine the level of the danger by using different criteria. In our study, some questionnaires were conducted with 58 participants from 40 villages. According to the results, the Khalaj language is between “vulnerable” and “definitely endangered” in terms of performance by the scale of 3.5. Nevertheless, in another evaluation done, taking into account the other data, the Khalaj language’s degree of endangerment is “severely endangered” by the scale of 1.7.
