Our website is dedicated to the Pahari languages, the Indo-Aryan languages of North India. The term “Pahari languages” comprises the languages covering the territory of India south of the Himalayas (the states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir) and Nepal. You will find here our own materials as well as links to other resources and publications on the Pahari languages and the culture of North India.
The site is intended primarily for linguists. However, we believe it will be of interest for other professionals such as anthropologists and ethnographers. It also provides useful information for travelers headed for the Himalayas. We have created this site for Kullui speakers as well. These wonderful people inspired our project and gave us an opportunity to get in touch with the life and culture of amazing India.
Our group is currently working on a description of the Kullui language (the Himachali Pahari group of languages). We collected our field data in 2014, 2016 and 2017 during our linguistic expeditions to the village of Naggar (Himachal Pradesh). The project is ongoing, so all the data on the site is being constantly updated, complemented and refined.
