From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Inku was an Indo-Aryan language formerly spoken throughout Afghanistan by four of the country's itinerant communities: the Jalali, the Pikraj, the Shadibaz and the Vangawala. Itinerant communities in Afghanistan, whether Inku-speaking or not, are locally known as "Jats" (not to be confused with the Jats of India and Pakistan), a term which is not a self-designation of the groups but rather a collective, often pejorative name given by outsiders.[3] It is presumably for this reason that the language is called Jakati in the Ethnologue encyclopedia.

Each of the four groups speaks a variety with slight differences compared to the others.[4] According to their local tradition, their ancestors migrated in the 19th century from the Dera Ismail Khan and Dera Ghazi Khan areas of eastern Balochistan (present-day Pakistan).[5] Such an origin suggests that Inku may be related to the Saraiki language spoken there,[6] though nothing is conclusively known.[7]

The total population of the four Inku-speaking groups was estimated to be 7,000 as of the end of the 1970s.[8] There is no reliable information about their present state, though it is unlikely that many have survived the recent upheavals in the country,[3] and Ethnologue states, though without citing a source, that Inku's last speakers "probably survived into the 1990s".[1]

Linguistic materials about the varieties spoken by the Shadibaz, Vangawala and Pikraj were collected by Aparna Rao in the 1970s, but they have not been published or analysed yet.[4]
