Bateri (بٹیری, बटेरी) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken mostly in Kohistan District, Pakistan and to a much lesser extent in Jammu and Kashmir, India.
As of now, there is little research done on the language and is currently being studied and surveyed by organizations like FLI (Forum for Language Initiatives), a Pakistani linguistic resource center based in Islamabad. The language is currently unwritten however may finally have one in the near future.
