پښتو - Facts about the Pashto language
Pashto is an Eastern Iranian language of the Indo-European language family. Notably, it is single dialect branch with its closest relation thought to be Ossetic, a language of the Caucasus region. However, it is far removed from Pashto and there is no mutual intelligibility. Pashto dialects can be split into two broad groups – Northern and Southern dialects, the differences being primarily phonological. Standard Pashto in Afghanistan is based on the Kandahar dialect, which is of the Southwest.
Pashto is written using a modified Perso-Arabic script. However, with the rise of internet usage, it has become more of a frequent occurrence to see Pashto written using the Latin alphabet.
