The Shina language is a Dardic speech spoken in the mountainous
regions of the upper Indus River and its tributaries in Pakistan and India, an area which extends more than eight hundred kilometers from east to west and three hundred kilometers from north to south – an area larger than Norway. It is divided into three major dialects: the Gilgiti, Kohistani and Astori. Until now, only the Gilgiti dialect has received the attention of scholars; this work is the only grammar of the Kohistani dialect, as well as the fi rst modern grammar of any Shina dialect.
