Facts about the Dogri Language
Dogri is one of the native languages of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is also given a language status among the 22 languages that have formal language status in our constitution.
Apart from Jammu and Kashmir, Dogri is also widely spoken in parts of Himachal Pradesh in our country and Pakistan outside our country. We can also find small pockets of the population speaking Dogri language in northern parts of Punjab as well.
It was in 1969 that Dogri was granted the status of an independent modern literary language. To get the acclaimed status, an expert panel was created which researched more on the language and based on their study and findings; the government went ahead with this decision.
The language and its script took its roots from the Takri script. It belongs to a special category of languages bundled under the Western Pahari group.
In today’s modern era, the Takri script is no longer in use and hence people who converse in the Dogri language use the Devanagari script for writing purposes.
The language has a blend of Prakrit, Persian and strangely, English words too. If we look at the grammatical context of the language, we can find the reflection of Sanskrit origin on the language.
