    Indo-Aryan Linguistic Tree

    posted already on Anthroscape & Theapricity

    I've looked around on the web, and there's barely any accurate linguistic charts detailing development of the languages in the Indo-Aryan Branch. So using the knowledge of the language family and its development structure, I tried to make a detailed chart to the best of my ability (though it is a bit simplistic since the developing structure of most of these languages are complex, and are inter-transitional between each other). I also included a lot of the extinct languages like Mittani that was spoken in the Levant, as well the Gandhari Prakrit of Western Punjab/Frontier which also has no modern equivalent.



    Modern Span of the Indo-Aryan languages




    The Chart I contructed:

    Unfortunately not a lot, but I think you'll find resources on learning Kashmiri/Koshur online.

    Is Chittagonian a language itself or it is just a bengali dialect?

    Dialect of Bengali but a nonstandard one. It just lacks the institutional support of Bengali.

    It's mutually unintelligible with Bengali, but is considered as a dialect of Bengali because we identify as Bengali. Though, historically, Bengalis have been referred to as "Bongal", while locals were Chatgaiya/Chittainga etc in the region.

    I speak Chatgaiya (Chittagonian) btw since I'm 1/2 Chittagonian, and most Bengali speakers wouldn't understand any of it lol. The Rohingya language is a Southern dialect of Chittagonian, and I can understand it perfectly. This is how Rohingya sounds.

    I understood about 7% actually. I can tell it is an Indo-Aryan language at least.

    Lol, that's good, though regular Chittagonian speakers would speak much faster. Also, it might have to do with the fact that you're from the eastern areas (Comilla), and most Indo-Aryan languages are sort of a dialect continuum anyway from Sindh to Assam, and from Kashmir to Maldives.
