Abstract

Khattak dialect is one of the highlighted dialects of the Pashto language. The speakers of Khattak dialect fall between 2-3 million still this dialect is considered as a low resource language and is deprived of recognition which resultantly limits Khattak poetry only to its true natives. Yousafzai dialect has gained the status of lingua franca in documentation which has suffered the Khattak dialect on a large scale. This paper aims to highlight Danish Khattak's poetic work, which is unveiling the profound potential of Khattak's poetry and how it is alarming for the art of Khattak dialect, which is short-lived and asks for recognition. This research paper aims to explore the significance of the Khattak dialect in the poetic expression of Danish Khattak's work.
