Pashto (also rendered as Pakhto, Pushto, Pukhto, Pashtoe, Pashtu, Pushtu, Pathani or Pushtoo and also known as Afghan language) is an Iranian language spoken by Pashtuns living in Afghanistan and western Pakistan. Although spoken by nearly 50 million people in various countries, it has been classified as a tribal tongue due to limited vocabulary, unstructured grammar and inconsistencies in syntax. However, some of the Pashto literature has been observed to follow modern literary trends.

Pashto is the national and (along with Dari) one of the two official languages of Afghanistan and is widely spoken by pashtuns and other ethnic groups. It is not an official language in Pakistan but is spoken by Pashtun communities in Pakistan's North West Frontier Province and Baluchistan Province.
