Diagnostic Research of the Most Used Words in Pashto Literary Texts


  • Tahmina Rahmani Assistant professor, Pashto Language and literature department, Kabul Education University, Afghanistan


Diagnostic research of the most used words in Pashto literary texts is a significant and valuable subject; to this day, no one has yet conducted research on this subject in Pashto literature which gave me a reasonable motivation to consider research that might satisfy the need of Pashto Literature. It’s important to realize how efficiently it should be conducted in a good manner so that the key points can be depicted throughout the research. Different research has been conducted by various researchers around the world in the most known language, which is the English language; those researchers have done so in order to solve the new learner’s problems. As a result of field research, the obtained data shows that some words have been accepted as academic words in the Pashto language. Due to the limitations of the topic in this study, only 20 words were selected. Therefore, it is clear that this can be the starting point of this research. Completing this task requires a lot of patience and a lot of perseverance, which I want to give as much attention to as possible.
