Other MI languages
There are at least four other MI languages attested
- Pāli - the language of the so-called Pāli Canon (the word Pāli/Pāḷi meaning 'a line'); however some would class Pāli as a form of Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit.
- Maghadī - known from Asoka edicts in what is now Bihar.
- Western MI - known from Asoka edicts in what is now Gujarat.
- Gāndhārī - know from manuscripts found in the Northwest Frontier provinces of what is now Pakistan, mostly Buddhist texts and inscriptions.
