Bust of Persian lexicographer Mohammad Moin unveiled


On the occasion of the 105th birth anniversary of Persian lexicographer Mohammad Moin, the bust of the Persian figure was unveiled during a ceremony on Friday.
In addition to the commemoration of Moin, the ceremony also paid tribute to Mohammad-Ali Amirjahed, a prominent Persian poet and musician, according to a report by IRNA.
The event was organized by the Tehran Landscape Organization, in collaboration with the Iran Music House and Iran Calligraphers Association.
Alongside the ceremony, the poster of the first edition of Mohammad Moin National Literary Festival was also revealed. The festival is expected to celebrate the contributions of Moin to the fields of culture, art, and literature.
The CEO of Iran Music House, Hamidreza Nourbakhsh, expressed appreciation for the profound impact of Moin and Amirjahed in their respective fields.
The unveiling of the bust and the commemoration of these two influential figures served as a testament to their lasting legacies in Persian culture, Nourbakhsh said.
Moin was a prominent lexicographer and compiled one of the most outstanding lexicons in the Persian language.
He was a university professor and his lexicon was second to that of Ali Akbar Dehkhoda (1879–1959).
Born in Rasht in 1914, Moin was the first student to graduate from the University of Tehran with a doctoral degree in Persian literature. Mohammad Moin completed Dehkhoda’s unfinished volumes in compliance with Dehkhoda’s request.
