    Pashto is a member of the southeastern Iranian branch of Indo-Iranian languages spoken in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran.
    The name Pashto is thought to derive from the reconstructed proto-Iranian form, parsawā 'Persian language. In northern Afghanistan speakers of Pashto are called Pakhtūn; in southern Afghanistan they are known as Pashtūn, and as Pathān or Afghan in Pakistan.
