Hi dear Odyssevs 

Esfahaani is an  accent rather than a dialect.

examples:

dar-e maghaaze -> dari maghaaze (maghaaze = store)

/aa/ -> /e/ ----> ??????? I'v never heard of it. I'm not sure if it's true.

final /sht/ ---> /sh/ I think is true. like: daasht miraft ---> daash miraf. (which I think hold true for other accents too, not just for esfahaani accent)

/j/ --> /dz/ :   jooje (= chicken)

/ast/ ---> /es/ or rarely /as/ : in ketaab ast ---> in ketaabes (ketaab = book)

/raa/--->/ aa /( /oo/ is used in  shiraazi accent ) : ketaab raa bede man ---> ketaabaa bede man. ( bede man = give me)

/t/ --->/ d/ it happens most of the time. almost whenever a word ends in t.

esedan not asedan. :)

bar ---> var : bar daashtan ---> var daashtan (= to pick up)

vandi  وندی???????????????????????? I've never heard of it :|
