Hi Sourav,
That's true however, I'm afraid without these how will we be able to understand and represent their dialogues (in written form) and cultural issues (part of localization).  
Regards,
Goutam

  Hi Goutam,

   

  Yes Gautam. There is my point.

   

  According to my knowledge, as a practice people talking in these different dialects are used to write/read Bengali in a single format which is the standard Bengali used in Bengali literature today.

   

  So, does it make sense to have these variants in the proposed standard as there ais no existing practice of using them in written form ?

   

  Regards,

  Sourav

    Hi Gautam,

     

    That's a good info.

     

    I'm really curious to know

    -    Based on what this classification is made ? Is it based on any standard followed in India ? 

    -    Are all these variants have their corresponding written form ? I'm not sure as I've not seen any literature/web-site etc. in the radhi/kamrupi/barendri/ or jharkhandi form.

    -    Which one of them is related to the Bengali in Bangladesh ? I guess bn-IN-bangali

     

    In general my worry is if these 5 variants are not much in use in Bengali Literature/Web Site etc. is it needed to have these 5 different variants.

     

    Regards,

    Sourav
