Hazaragi is classified by some linguists as an eastern dialect of Persian, and by others as a separate language. It is closely related to and mutually intelligible with Dari. Unlike Dari, Hazaragi has many loanwords from Mongolian.
ث, ح, ذ, ص, ض, ط, ظ and ع are only used in Arabic loanwords.

دَش رَفتُم پلِشِ سب نبد, نم شِیو بد. ىك مجك ِستدُم, اُ مهقچرَك دَر جیو بد. نگه بِیدَر شادَك پِر جسر مدَر اَﻭ.
Doš raftum pališi sob nabud, nim šew bud. Yak maxak istadum, u mahqacarak dar xew bud. Nagah bedar šodak pir xosur madar aw.
Last night I went to her side, it was not morning then, but the middle of the night. I took a little kiss, and the moon-browed one was asleep. Suddenly awoke her old mother-in-law.
