Haryanvi (Devanagari: हरियाणवी hariyāṇvī or हरयाणवी harayāṇvī) is an Indo-Aryan language. It is native to the regions of Haryana and Delhi of India. It is written using the Devanagiri script. It is also considered to be the northernmost dialect of Hindi. It is similar to Braj Bhasha[4] and has a ≈60% lexical similarity with Bagri.[5] It is most widely spoken in the North Indian state of Haryana. The term Haryanvi is also used for people from Haryana.
