Bengali Language:

Bengali is an Indo-European language that belongs to the Bengali-Assamese group of Eastern Zone languages within the Indo-Aryan subfamily, hence, it is closely related to Assamese and Oriya. The main dialects of Bengali are; Central or Standard Bengali, Western Bengali (Kharia Thar, Mal Paharia, Saraki), Southwestern Bengali, Northern Bengali (Koch, Siripuria), Rajbangsi, Bahe, Eastern Bengali, Haijong, Southeastern Bengali (Chakma), Ganda, Vanga, Chittagonian.

Historically it has evolved from the Magadhi Prakrit, Pāli and Sanskrit languages, but it has developed its own writing script, known as Bangla or as Kutila-lipi or ‘crooked script’. Though it highly resembles the Devanagari script of Hindi, Sanskrit, and other related Indic languages, it does not follow the grammatical rules of these languages. It has freed itself from grammatical gender and fixed stress on the initial syllable of a word or phrase.

The Bengali script consists of 12 vowel graphemes and 52 consonant graphemes and is written left to right. Bengali is also a source for some other related languages in the region, like Assamese and Meithei that use the Bengali script with minor modifications. The national anthems of both India and Bangladesh were written in Bengali by renowned scholar Rabindranath Tagore.
