Classical literature in Azeri was formed in 14th century based on the Tabrizi and Shirvani[citation needed] dialects (these dialects were used by classical Azeri writers Nasimi, Fuzuli, and Khatai). Modern literature in the Republic of Azerbaijan is based on the Shirvani dialect only, while in Iran it is based on the Tabrizi one. The first newspaper in Azeri, kinçi was published in 1875.
