@Traveller and @Shapur

This Marwat dialect is quite unique actually.It is different from Wazirwola.In the video the Marwat guy is mimicing Wazirwola and Bannu dialects.
The reason you,Shapur can better understand the Southern Kandahari/Quetta dialect is because they use a lot of words and terminology which is generally used in Afghanistan.
The northern dialect of Peshawar and surroundings is probably the most common and well known dialect and I would say that a Pashtun from practically anywhere would be able to understand it.

Another reason is , northern dialect Pakhto is taught in our schools, and thats how we read the Pashto text........although our dialect is different, Pashto poets from our areas do poetry in hard dialect. Same is case with Waziristan and Bannu , they switch to easy northern dialect in poetry and songs. Moreover people from our areas watch TV shows of Peshawari dialect.....so Pashtuns from South can understand Peshawari Pashto but people from upper districts find it difficult to comprehend ours (particularly of Bannu and Waziristan). As their ears are not used to it, so they are generally unable to pick up even simple tazhay (tagay), shaza/shaja (khaza) etc alternations in early communications.

As pointed out by toughpashtun, the toki is telling joke about a Bannuchi and a Wazir , and is mimicking the respective accents.

Pashto is not taught in schools , or is it?Maybe in a few areas ?
But there is no systematic teaching all across the province?

Isn't written Pashto based on Kandahari dialect?

Hahaha ik that feel. I was you a while ago but i kept watching videos and talking to people from the region and have started to understand it(unless they use words exclusive to their area but even then its understandable).
