The Punjabi Language
Punjabi is an Indo-Aryan language of the Indo-European language family. It is unique for being the only tonal language in this family. There are ten Punjabi dialects which are mostly mutually intelligible. This course teaches the Eastern Punjabi dialect as spoken in India. Punjabi is spoken by approximately 110-112 million people world-wide. It is an official language in the Indian states of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, and is also spoken elsewhere in northwestern India. Although not considered an official language in Pakistan, it is spoken by the majority in the Pakistani province of Punjab. It is also spoken by expatriate communities in Bangladesh, Canada, Fiji, Kenya, Libya, Malaysia (Peninsular), Mauritius, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States. In Canada, Punjabi is thought to be the sixth most frequently spoken language. Punjabi is most commonly written using the Gurmukhi script.
