Usage notes[edit]

  • In Afghanistan, the Pashto loan پوهنتون(pôhantun, university) is also in common use following the Pashtunization policies of successive Pashtun-dominated governments. The choice between پوهنتون(pôhantun) and دانشگاه (dânešgâh) has been politically controversial, with the former sometimes being seen as a Pashtun imposition upon Persian speakers.
