Hazaragi source Wikipedia

Hazaragi is a variety of Persian, spoken by the Hazara people of Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. The primary differences between Standard Persian and Hazaragi are the accent and a larger borrowing of Turkic and Mongolic vocabulary. 

Classification

Hazaragi has been classified as both a separate language and as a dialect of Persian. It is easily distinguishable from other Persian dialects or languages spoken in Afghanistan. Hazaragi contains some Mongolic and Turkic words.

Area

Hazaragi is spoken by the Hazara people of central Afghanistan as well as by a large refugee population found in northeastern Iran and in parts of Pakistan, such as Quetta.
