More about the Bengali Language

History of Bengali

The Bengali language, also known as Bangla, is currently the official and national language of Bangladesh, with 98% of Bangladeshi people speaking it as their main language. It is also officially recognised in Northern India. Indian Bengali does have some variations in the use of grammar, verb forms and structure of sentences so it is vital to differentiate between dialects when choosing a translator. Bengali is the sixth most spoken language by total number of speakers in the world.

The Bengali language can be traced all the way back to 3500 BC. Old Bengali dates to when priests and educators used Sanskrit in the region of Bengal, and what we call Modern Bengali started around the 1760s. Much of the language consists of the same vocabulary as surrounding languages.

In Modern Bengali we can observe that more than half of the Bengali vocabulary is made up of native words, which means they are naturally modified Sanskrit words and also words influenced from Indo-European languages. The rest of the vocabulary is made up of unmodified Sanskrit and foreign words.

Because of centuries of contact with Europeans, Turks and Persians, the foreign words in their vocabulary largely come from these languages, as well as Portuguese, Dutch and English.

Native Speakers

Bengali is the sixth most spoken native language in the world, with approximately 228 million native speakers, and 98% percent of those speakers originating from Bangladesh. Having said that, it is also spoken by dispersed Bangladeshis in Europe, the United States, and many other countries.

Modern Bengali exhibits a lot of diglossia. This is when a language has two forms - one more prestigious form used by speakers who have been formally educated and another less formal dialect which is used more commonly. Furthermore, there are so many dialects within the Bengali or Bangla language that most Bangladeshis will often speak more than one variety.

These different dialects within the Bengali language are associated with varying social classes, religion, and levels of education.

Also, recent studies have shown that the use of native and foreign words has been increasing, probably because the preference of native Bengali speakers is to use the colloquial style.

Bengali Writing

The script is derived from Brahmi, one of the ancient Indian scripts. It is characterised for having letters for consonants and diacritics for vowels. It is also a cursive script, does not distinguish between upper and lower case and like a lot of other Indo-European languages, the letters run from left to right.

Punctuation marks have all been taken from 19th century English. Also taken from the English language, the nouns are gender neutral, so in other words, there are no declinations to indicate a word is masculine of feminine.

Bengali spelling started to standardise through a set of reforms in the early 1930s, and it has affected several spelling variations. Not surprisingly, these standardisations of the Bengali orthography have just created more confusion amongst the experts.
