Pashto (alternatively spelled Pakhto, Pushto or Pukhto), also known historically as Afghani (افغاني afǧānī) and Pathani, is the native language of the Pashtun people of South-Central Asia. It is a member of the Eastern Iranian languages group, and is descended from Avestan, the oldest preserved Iranian language. Pashto is spoken in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as among the Pashtun diaspora around the world. Pashto belongs to the Northeastern Iranic branch of the Indo-Iranian language family, although Ethnologue lists it as Southeastern Iranian. The number of Pashtuns or Pashto-speakers is estimated 40–60 million people worldwide. Pashto is one of the two official languages of Afghanistan (the other being Dari), and a regional language in western and northwestern Pakistan.
