Other MI languages[edit]

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.
