[No. 37.]

INDO-ARYAN FAMILY.                     (EASTERN GROUP.)

BENGALI OR BANGA-BHiSHA.
DIALECT.                                                             (Ruwpro DISTRICT.)

[ In the phonetic transcription * is pronounced hard as in sin, this, and not like the sh in shell, which is represented by
sk. Z is somewhat softer than the z of zeal, but not so soft as the * in pleasure,
Pronounce a as the a in to; las the 0 in met; oas the o what; and oi as in off. The letter o (without any
diacritical mark) represents the sound of the first o in promote, and of the o in the French word wtre as compared with
vfote. It should be carefully distinguished from the 6 of hot.
Other consonants and vowels are pronounced as in the authorized Government system.]
