A short history of the Mirpuri language

English to Mirpuri subtitling service

Mirpuri is a district in Azad Kashmir in Pakistan. The Mirpuri language is part of the Pahri or Potwari language, which belongs to Punjabi. In the 1920s a linguist called Garrison completed a linguistic survey of India. He classified Mirpuri as belonging to the northern cluster of Western Punjabi. However, recently Potwari has been standardised as a language, rather than a dialect, but it has caused some controversy amongst linguists.

Potwari has influences from Dardic languages, such as those from Kashmir and Eastern Afghanistan. It is a close relation to Punjabi.

The Mirpuri language is also referred to as Pahari, which means ‘mountainous’ and around 2.5 million people live in Mirpuri and the surrounding areas. The official language used for government purposes is Urdu, but people use Mirpuri at home to speak to one another.

There are Mirpuri speakers in the United Kingdom, as part of the Pakistani migrant community. They came mainly due to the fact that a large number of Mirpuri people lost their homes due to a dam building project in the 1960s. Several hundred thousand chose to settle overseas in the UK.
