just a guess Oct 16, 2005

kiSwahili, perhaps?

-------------------

Sorry, I got it wrong. It's Kashmiri (most probably related to Hindi and Punjabi). Swahili is "sw".

Following Jarema's posting and quote from Wiki, I looked up "dardic languages" and I found a useful explanation specifially on Kashmiri:

So it is not closely related to Hindi and Punjabi (and Nepali, and Pashtu, etc.), only distantly.

Kashmiri language
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Kashmiri is a Dardic language primarily in Kashmir, now split between India Pakistan and China. It has 4,611,000 speakers.

It is an SVO language. It was originally written in the Sharada script, but now is written in Persian scripts. The earliest literary composition in Kashmiri that has survived is the poetry of Lalleshvari, the 14th century mystic poet.

Kashmiri writing is one of the dying arts due to various political reasons and lack of formal education in the kashmiri language. It is now mostly relevant in its spoken form and the speakers of this language are also decreasing in number.

Kashmiri language has a rich heritage in forms of various poets and singers. It has been the language of numerous poets of the sufi era. The songs in kashmiri language, also known as kashur to its native speaker, are called 'ge(gue-ss)wu(wo-lf)n' and the chorus songs are known as 'won(one)wu(wo-lf)n'.
