ABSTRACT

Language is an important channel of communication among individuals and communities. Vernacular language is a local language commonly spoken by a community or a group of people in a particular region. It is language along with culture which preserves the identity of communities. India is a land of diverse languages spoken at various corners of the country. With the advent of English, it was perceived that the vernacular languages of India and their future were at stake but their preservation was the key challenge. However, the biggest achievement of vernacular languages was their survival and their key role during and after colonial period. The J&K state is also diverse in culture and languages.  Kashmiri, Dogri, Urdu and Gojri are the prominent languages of the state.

In this backdrop, the present paper aims to explore the origin, development and role of Gojri as vernacular language in Jammu and Kashmir. This paper demonstrates that except Ladakh region Gojri is spoken in all over the state. It is a dominant language in Rajouri and Poonch. This paper concludes that this language has played a vital role in the preservation of Gujjar culture through media and different forms of literature.

 

Key Words: vernacular, diverse cultures, Gojri, prominent language, nomad.
