Farhang-i Jahāngīrī, one of the most complete and authoritative dictionaries of the Persian language, was compiled by Mir Jamal al-Din Husayn Inju. It took him 12 years to compile over 9,000 words with definitions and examples from verses by Persian poets. He was born in Shiraz, Iran, but lived most of his life in Agra, India, so the dictionary was named honor of the Mughal emperor Jahangir, who reigned from 1605 to 1627.
