More than two-dozen languages of Indian-Aryan, Iranian, Tibetan and Nooristani origins are spoken in the NWFP and the Northern Areas, most of which do not have a script. Henrik Lijegran, a research consultant at the Frontier Language Institute (FLI) told Daily Times about his institute’s efforts to preserve and promote the mother tongues of various language communities of northern Pakistan. He said the institute has facilitated the development of scripts of 20 regional languages.
