Hindko language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
The expression "Hindko" is a Pashto word most widely used to mean "the Indian language" or "language of Hind" but it has evolved to describe types of Indo-Aryan speech spoken in the northern Indian subcontinent as opposed to the neighbouring Pashto, an Iranian language. Hindko is a term used by a mixed group of Lahnda dialects spoken by several million people of different ethnic backgrounds in several discontinuous areas in northwest Pakistan, mainly in the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
The entire Hindko dialect continuum is split by the Ethnologist into two languages: Northern Hindko for the Hazara dialects, and Southern Hindko for the remaining varieties. This classification finds support in the findings of the intelligibility tests carried out by Rensch, which also showed that the southern dialects are more commonly understood in the Hindko region than the northern ones.
Hindko dialects eventually move to other varieties of Lahnda and Punjabi in the south. For example, Saraiki dialects are found in the southwest around the Salt Range, and at least one of them – the one spoken in the Dera Ismail Khan District – is often referred to as "Hindko". To the southeast, with the Galyat zone of Abbottabad district and the area of Muzaffarabad in Azad Kashmir roughly falling on the border between the two, Hindko is in a dialect continuum with Pahari-Pothwari.
With Punjabi and Saraiki, Hindko is mutually intelligible, and has more affinities with the latter than with the former. In morphology and phonology, discrepancies with other Punjabi varieties are more pronounced than in syntax. For this language group, an alternate local name is Hindki. A Hindko speaker can be known as Hindki, Hindkun, or Hindkowan (Hindkuwan).
Hindko varieties are predominantly spoken in the central area of the Attock district in the north-western corner of Punjab province, and in two neighbouring regions: Peshawar to the north-west, and Hazara to the north-east, both in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Hazara's Hindko also stretches east into Kashmir's surrounding areas.
