Lahnda

continuum of Punjabi dialects spoken in western regions of Punjab

Lahnda also known as Lehndi are a group of north-western Indo-Aryan language varieties spoken in Pakistan and India,[2][3] which began in areas of western Punjab region as well as in Hazara region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Saraiki and Hindko are often grouped in the Lahnda dialects. When the partition of India occurred in 1947, many speakers of Lahnda varieties migrated to areas of eastern Punjab in India. Today the dialects of Lahnda spoken in both Pakistan and India are mixed in origin.[4][5]
