Dialects of Brahmanbaria and Sylhet: a linguistic analysis
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is concerned with the comparison of the dialects of Brahmanbaria and Sylhet investigating their linguistics features. To draw the comparison, I have used two types of questions which include selected sets of words and sentences. Particularly, this study tries to assess the similarities and dissimilarities of the selected dialects of two regions keeping the standard form of language in view so that the unfamiliar pronunciation, vocabulary and syntax of the studied dialects can be made familiar to those who are not using such dialects. The study also focuses on the conditions on which the original form of particular dialect depends. Moreover, this paper tries to investigate the causes of the dialectal variations of two regions to some extent. Here, this is to be mentioned that this study is a very little attempt to cover the vast areas of dialects of these two mentioned districts.
