INDO-ARYAN   FAMILY.                     (EASTERN GROUP.)

EASTEBN DIALECT.                                                             (MYMENSINGH DISTRICT,)

[In this transliteration ' represents the elision of an aspirate, which giTes a pronunciation like that of k in the French
word Me. Z in somewhat softer than the * of zeal, but not so soft as the * in pleasure. The letter y (above the line) is
very faintly pronounced, and is, indeed, hardly audible.

Pronounce a as the a in bat; e as the e in met , o as the o in hot / and oi as in oil. The letter o (without any
diacritical mark) represents the sound of the first o in promote, and is the o in the French word votre as compared with
*6tre. It should be carefully distinguished from the 6 of hot.

Other consonants and vowels are pronounced as in the authorized Government system.]
