Baluchi (بلوچى)

Baluchi is a Northwestern Iranian language spoken by about seven million people. Most Baluchi speakers live in Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, but there as also speakers in India, the Arab Gulf States, Turkmenistan and East Africa.

Baluchi first started to be written during the 19th century. At first it was written with the Latin alphabet using a spelling system devised by British linguists. After Pakistan gained independence in 1947, Baloch scholars adopted the Perso-Arabic script to write their language. Baluchi is written with a version of the Arabic script based on Pashto in Afghanistan.

Baluchi, which is also known as Balochi Baloci or Baluci, has two main dialects: Eastern and Western, the main dialect used in Baluchi literature.
