Dogri is a language spoken by more than two million people in Jammu and Kashmir region of India and Pakistan. It is also spoken by Dogri communities residing in various parts of India, including Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, and Delhi.
Traditionally, Dogri was written using Dogra Akkhar script, which is the modified version of Takri script. However, the use of the Dogra Akkhar script declined over time, and today, Dogri is primarily written using the Devanagari script, which is also used for languages such as Hindi and Sanskrit.
The adoption of the Devanagari script for writing Dogri has provided a standardised writing system, making it easier for speakers to communicate in writing and enabling the publication of literature, newspapers, and other written materials in Dogri.
In terms of grammar, Dogri follows a subject-object-verb (SOV) word order and words are formed by adding suffixes to the root words. These suffixes indicate various grammatical functions such as tense, case, number, and gender.
The vocabulary of Dogri has been influenced by various languages and cultures throughout its history. It has borrowed words from languages such as Sanskrit, Punjabi, Hindi, and Persian, among others.
Dogri, with its rich linguistic heritage, is an important part of the cultural identity of the Dogra community in Jammu and Kashmir and other regions where it is spoken. Efforts are being made to promote and preserve the language through education, literature, and cultural events.

Traditionally, the Dogri language was written using the old Dogra Akkhar script, which is a modified version of the Takri script. However, due to the script's limitations in accurately representing the sounds of Dogri, the Devanagari script gradually became the preferred writing system for Dogri.
The Devanagari script, commonly used for languages like Hindi and Sanskrit, provides a more comprehensive and suitable representation of the phonetic elements of Dogri. Its adoption has facilitated standardized writing and improved communication in the language.
