Many Dashoras  can speak  Marathi and Gujarati as well Urdu.

But in between Dashora families  dialects spoken  include:

Malvi or Malwi  ( For families who have settled in and originate from Indore area)


Mewadi ( For families who have settled in and originate from Udaipur area)



Malvi language
is the language of the Malwa region of India, with more than a million speakers. The language is also sometimes known as Malavi, Ujjaini, etc. Malvi is classified with the Rajasthani languages, with Nimadi, spoken in the Nimar region of Madhya Pradesh and in Rajasthan, being its closest cousin. The dialects of Malvi are, in alphabetical order, Bachadi, Bhoyari, Dholewari, Hoshangabadi, Jamral, Katiyai, Malvi Proper, Patvi, Rangari, Rangri and Sondwari.
