INDO-ARYAN FAMILY.                     (EASTERN GROUP,)


SoUTBkEASTEBN DIALECT*                                                                     (CHITTAGONG DlSTBICT.)

(J. D* Anderson, ESQ., I.C.8., 1896.)

Nof B.— As in other Bengali Balecfc, the spelling does not agree with the pronunciation, An interlinear phonetic transcrip-
tion is therefore given-in italics. In this transcription proaoance 0, like the a in hai ; *, like the e in met ; 59 like the
ğ in cob ; e, like the a in oat* ; 5, like the o in home $ and Mt l&e the Scotch cA in foc&. The sign rv over a vowel
ikes it. An apostrophe hefore a vowel, thus, 'oil, means a very faint aspiration.)
