Introduction To Burushaski Language
Burushaski (stress on the second syllable) is spoken by some one hundred thousand people in northern area of Pakistan Hunzakuts, who live in the valleys of the Hunza nagar poneyal gizar and Yasin and Gilgit where these cut through the Karakoram Range . The language is not obviously related to any of the surrounding languages.
The Indic languages of Pakistan or the Tibetan languages of China and northern Kashmir. Although Burushaski has been compared to almost any language on earth, no fully convincing relation-ships have yet been established.
Modern taxonomic methods are, however, beginning to yield results. (1989) still classified Burushaski as a language isolate its genetic affiliation remains a complete. Although many adult speakers of Burushaski also speak Khowar, Shina or Urdu, Burushaski is the normal means of communication in both the Hunza and the Yasin valleys it was and still is the carrier of a vigorous story-telling culture. Burushaski is not an endangered language. Until recently, Burushaski was not a written language and original historical material is very scarce.
Some texts have been written down by native speakers at the request of researchers; these texts are in the Urdu Hunza valley, the Hunzakut society has opened up, and literature is now being written in Burushaski. Due to external influences, more than half the present-day Burushaski vocabulary is of Urdu, Khowar and Shina origin (Khowar and Shina are two Northern Indic (Dardic) languages, closely related to Kashmiri and some what further away, to Hindi/Urdu. It is the rest of its vocabulary and its structure that make Burushaski a language isolated. There are perhaps half a dozen loans from Turkish and one or two from the Tibetan language Balti, spoken on the other side of the Karakoram range.
