Two Gujar communities were studied in depth in order to
examine social features relevant to sociolinguistic patterns in
these communities. The first community was Peshmal, a small
Gujar town in northern Swat Valley near Kalam. The second was
Mittikot, a village in the mountains above Balakot, near the
mouth of the Kaghan Valley. For the purposes of this study, the
Peshmal community, in the proposed Western dialect area,
represents Gujars living in a small town which is easily
accessable and is set in a dominant Pashtoon region with Pashto
as the language of wider communication. The Mittikot
community, in the proposed Eastern dialect area, represents
Gujars in a small, more isolated village set in a region where
Hindko is the dominant language of wider communication.
