Punjabi dialects[original research?]

Chhachi, Chacchī,[1] or Chachhī[2] (چھاچھی)[citation needed] is a dialect of Hindko spoken in the northwestern parts of Punjab, Pakistan.[3] Grierson classified it within his "North-Western Lahndā" group, whereas Shackle considers it part of Hindko "proper", alongside Ghebī and Avāṅkārī.[1]
