dbo:abstract
  • Palula (also spelt Phalura, Palola, Phalulo), and also known as Ashreti (Aćharêtâʹ) or Dangarikwar (the name used by Khowar speakers) is a Dardic language spoken by approximately 10,000 people in the valleys of Ashret and , as well as in the village of Puri (also Purigal) in the , and at least by a portion of the population in the village Kalkatak, in the Chitral District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is closely related to the Sawi language of Afghanistan, and to Kalkoti, which is spoken in Dir District. The area where Palula is spoken includes 35°28′N 71°53′E / 35.467°N 71.883°E. In some of the smaller villages, Palula has either ceased to be spoken (in the village Ghos, situated near Drosh) or its speakers are largely shifting (as in Puri and Kalkatak) to the more widely spoken Khowar language. However, in the main Palula settlements in the Biori and Ashret valleys, it is a strong, vibrant and growing language, as the population in those areas increases, and it is still with a few exceptions the mother tongue of almost all people. Palula is pronounced as /paːluːláː/, with three long vowels and a rising pitch on the final syllable. (en)
