Shughni is a Pamir language belonging to the southeastern Iranian language group and spoken in parts of Tajikistan and Afghanistan by maybe 80,000 people. About half the speakers of Shughni live in Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Province in Tajikistan, and the other half in Badakhshan Province in Afghanistan.
Shughni was written with the Arabic alphabet until 1931, then with the Latin alphabet until 1938, and with the Cyrillic alphabet since then. However it is rarely written.
