BENGALI

FROM WIKIPEDIA Bengali or Bangla is an Indo-Aryan language of South Asia that evolved as a successor to the Sanskrit, Pali, and Prakrit languages. Bengali is the English word for the name of the language and for its speakers; in Bengali, the language itself is called Bangla, a term now has greater currency in English. From this point forward, Bangla will be used to refer to the language. Bangla is native to the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal, which comprises Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal.
