The Indo-Aryan language spoken on the Pothohar Plateau in the far north of Punjab, as well as in most of the Pakistani polity of Azad Kashmir and in western areas of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, is known by a variety of names, the most common of which are Pahari (English: ) and Pothwari (or Pothohari). Grierson in his early 20th-century Linguistic Survey of India assigned it to a so-called "Northern cluster" of Lahnda, but this classification, as well as the validity of the Lahnda grouping in this case, have been called into question.

dbo:abstract
  • The Indo-Aryan language spoken on the Pothohar Plateau in the far north of Punjab, as well as in most of the Pakistani polity of Azad Kashmir and in western areas of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, is known by a variety of names, the most common of which are Pahari (English: ) and Pothwari (or Pothohari). The language is transitional between Hindko and Standard Punjabi.Its speakers have a local linguistic, but not ethnic, identity that is separate from that of Punjabi and there has been a nascent, if not yet coherent, language movement. There have been efforts at cultivation as a literary language, although a local standard has not been established yet. Grierson in his early 20th-century Linguistic Survey of India assigned it to a so-called "Northern cluster" of Lahnda, but this classification, as well as the validity of the Lahnda grouping in this case, have been called into question.
