The two following specimens come from the Bamganj thana situated in the west
of the District, close to Tippera. It will be seen that the dialect is still distinctly
South-Eastern, and closely resembles that of Hatia and Chhagalnaiya. The first
specimen is the Parable of tbe Prodigal Son, and the other a popular song.
There are few special forms which require notice. Forms like l&igl^ he began, and
rdikhtd* to keep, belong to Eastern Bengal* The Infinitive in tdm> is common to the
Eastern and South-Eastern dialects* It occurs here in ka'itdm* to say. We may note
forms like hat-re-ttun, from in the field, and ta-g^re, to them. Amne means c self' and
dmnd,c own/ Tan is used for 'him/ Ra'ichhat means * thou remainest.*
