    That's right. The same you do with "German" vs "Deutch", "French" vs
    "Francais", "Irish" vs "Gaelige", "Dutch" vs ...

    Of course you may have another authoritative source that recommends
    something else, and you are free to use it.

    BTW, I'll transcribe it as 'faarsi' in ASCII. The IPA is "fa:rsi:".
