Jhangvi (جھنگوی), Jhangochi (جھنگوچی) or Rachnavi(رچناوی) is a dialect of the Punjabi language.


Jhangvi is considered dialect of Punjabi because it is mutually intelligible with, and morphologically and syntactically similar to, the standard Punjabi of Pakistani Punjab.[1][2][3][4] Its name is derived from Jhang.[5]
