Spread of the Panjabi language

This smaller map removes the countries where Panjabi is dominant. This map therefore only shows 1.1% of all speakers of Panjabi. The territories omitted are India and Pakistan.

Panjabi means 'the language of the Punjab', a state in northern India. There are roughly 96 million speakers, in at least 14 territories. The vast majority of these are in India and Pakistan, although Panjabi has no official status in Pakistan. There are also significant numbers of speakers in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

The language is sometimes known in English as 'Punjabi', but this is generally accepted to be a mispronunciation of 'Panjabi'.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Panjabi as a first language that live in that territory.
