    OK this was on my mind, I think that the language that you use with your siblings is the language you are the most comfortable with, I talk to my siblings in crude villager type punjabi language of Gujranwala district. So which language you guys use to talk to your siblings?

    How is it even possible, normally you will speak in only one language to your siblings? I am getting funny answers so far on this thread.

    Well it depends. When we are face to face , we use Pashto. But when we are texting then Urdu or english. As its too hard for me , and them to write and then understand pashto written in roman letters so better use urdu or english.

    Default with my siblings and kids is English, unless we want to discuss something around the goray without them knowing.

    With parents, elders, cousins from Pakistan I default to pahari/Mirpuri.

    My wife and I talk in Mirpuri, but argue in English lolol
