262 [No. 59.] INDO-ARYAN FAMILY. (EASTERN GROUP.) BENGALI OR BANGA-BHiSHA. EASTEEN DIALECT. (BACKERG-UNG-B DISTEICT.) [In the phonetic transcription' represents the elision of an aspirate, •which gives a pronunciation like that of h in the French word kote, Z is somewhat softer than the z of zeal, but not so soft as the s in pleasure. The letter y (above the line) ii very faintly pronounced, and is, indeed, hardly audible. Pronounce a as the a in hat; e nearly as the e'in met; o as the o in hot; and oi as in oil. Tba letter o (without any diacritical mark) represents the sound of the first o in ^r0#iQfe,aud is the o in the French word votre as compared with vfare. It should be carefully distinguished from the 6 of hot. Other consonants and vowels are pronounced as in the authorized Government system.] Ek-jan-mansher dugga p5la acbbil Targo-madye cbbotugga her-bapre M-zfa~mansher dugga pola asil.
