Punjabi (Punjabi: ਪੰਜਾਬੀ) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by 102 million native speakers worldwide, making it the 9th most widely spoken language (2010) in the world. It is the native language of the Punjabi people from Punjab. It is the only tonal language among the Indo-Aryan languages.

Differences from ATL Punjabi and OTL

Scripts

In OTL, the Punjab region has two scripts, Gurmukhi script in the majority Sikh Indian Punjab and the Shahmukhi script for in majority Muslim Pakistani Punjab. In the Punjab, due to a long period of Sikh rule, there is majority Sikh population meaning that Gurmukhi is the sole script of the Punjabi language.

Words

The major difference in the words are that English borrowed words such as; bus, phone, mobile have been replaced by archaic or non OTL existing words, as English had little to no impact on the language unlike in OTL. In OTL Punjabi mostly English country names are used, in ATL most names come from Persian.
