Badeshi is an almost extinct Indo-Iranian language spoken in Pakistan.[2] Its distinctiveness is unconfirmed; it may be a family name. In 2014 "Ethnologue, Languages of the World" stated Badeshi had not been spoken for at least three generations but in 2018 the BBC found three men who could still speak the language.[1]

Muhammad Zaman Sagar, a field linguist connected to the Forum for Language Initiative, has worked on this language. But as a result of his research during two years, he collected only about one hundred words.[3] In July 2007 he visited the Bishigram Valley again and spent some days with the people there.

2018 मे BBC के पत्रकार पता कइले बा कि सैद गुल, अलि सेर आ रहिम गुल अभी भि यी तिनो जन बदेशी भाषा बिशिग्राम घाटी मे बोलेला । [3] They said that the Torwali language had taken over from Badeshi in their village. The men also had worked in tourist areas in the Swat valley where they spoke Pashto. Some phrases of Badeshi were:

  • Meen naao Rahim Gul thi - My name is Rahim Gul
  • Meen Badeshi jibe aasa - I speak Badeshi
  • Theen haal khale thi? - How do you do?
  • May grot khekti - I have eaten
  • Ishu kaale heem kam ikthi - There is not much snowfall this year[3]
