Pothwari language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
In the far north of Pakistani Punjab, as well as in most of Pakistan's Azad Kashmir and in the western areas of India's Jammu and Kashmir, the Indo-Aryan language spoken on the Pothohar Plateau is identified by a range of names, the most famous of which are Pahari and Pothwari (or Pothohari). The language is transitional between Standard Punjabi and Standard Punjabi.
As a literary language, attempts have been made to develop it, but a local standard has not yet been developed. Pahari-Pothwari speakers are known as Pahari people in Kashmir. There are at least three main dialects: Pothwari, Mirpuri and Pahari. They are mutually intelligible, but the disparity between the northernmost and southernmost dialects is adequate to create undue difficulties in understanding.
In Indian Jammu and Kashmir, Pahari is also spoken further east through the Line of Control to the Pir Panjal mountains. In the area between the Jhelum and Chenab rivers, the population is estimated at 1 million: most notably in the Poonch and Rajouri districts, to a lesser degree in neighbouring Baramulla and Kupwara, and also as a result of the influx of refugees during the Partition of 1947 (Indian and Pakistan) – scattered throughout the rest of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pahari is one of the regional languages mentioned in the sixth Jammu and Kashmir Constitution Schedule. This Pahari is often conflated in the mountainous area in the southeast of Indian Jammu and Kashmir with the Western Pahari languages spoken. These languages are also called "Pahari" like Bhadarwahi and its neighbours, but they are not closely related to Pahari-Pothwari.
