Culture > How a unique language survives in Kashmir’s tiny Burusho community

The Burushaski language is considered a language isolate (i.e, has no known historical or linguistic relationship to any other languages) by many linguists. Burushaski is spoken by around 350 people of the Burusho community of Kashmir and around 100,000 people of the Hunza, Nagar and Gupis-Yasin districts in Gilgit-Baltistan.
