Bengali soon to come!
There is a justified speculation that Bengali might soon show up on the incubator!
wow....feels really great to see people interested in our language and culture .... did you know that bengali is the only language in the world for which people gave their lives in 1952 in the movement against Pakistan. Later UNESCO declared 21st february as International Mother Language Day in honor of Bengali language movement and linguistic rights of people around the world.
The language possess a long history of culture, literature, lifestyle, livings, joys and sorrows of bengali people.
No, I was not aware of this. Thanks for sharing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Mother_Language_Day
Though very few people know of a similar language movement that happened in India http://www.unishemay.org/html/english-language.htm
I am an American speaker of Bangla and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the very important, and far too often overlooked, Bengali language come to light. In the meantime, I second Andrea Mandal's list of resources and also suggest "Introduction to Bengali: Part I" by Dimmock, Bhattacharji and Chatterjee.
