Wasi-wari (Vasi-vari, Wasi-weri) is a language spoken by the Wasi people in a few villages in the Prasun Valley in Afghanistan. The most used alternative names are Prasuni or Prasun, which derive from Pashto.
Its speakers have been estimated at 1,000 (2000) and are 100% Muslim. Literacy rates are low: below 1% for people who have it as a first language, and between 15% and 25% for people who have it as a second language.
Vasi-vari is the most isolated of the Nuristani languages.
