INDO-ARYAN FAMILY.                      (EASTERN GROUP.)

SOUIH-EASTKBN DIALECT.                                       (RAM&ANJ, NOAKHALI DMTEICT.)

[In the plionetic transcription'represents the elision of an aspirate, which gives a pronnnciation like that of A in the
French word Ute. S is pronounced hard as in ttw, sin, and not like sh in shell, which is represented by *L Z is some*
what softer than the * of zeal, but not so soft as the s m pleasure.

Pronounce a as the a in Aa*j e as the e in wet ; rfas the o in Art; and oj as in «?. The letter o (without any
diacritical mark) represents the short sound of the o in home. It is the first o in ^rowwfc and is the o in the French word
v<*j* as compared with ttire. It should be carefully distinguished from the o of lot.

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