The dialects of the Bengali language are part of the Eastern Indo-Aryan language group of the Indo-European language family. Borishali (Barisal region), Noakhali (Noakhali region), Rongpore (Rangpur Region), Khulna (Khulna region) and Mymonshingh (Mymensingh region) are major spoken dialects in Bangladesh. Sylheti, Chittagonian, Chakma and Rohingya are some of the many languages that are often considered dialects of Bengali. Although these languages are mutually intelligible with neighboring dialects of Bengali, they lack mutual intelligibility with the Bengali language and would not be understood by a native speaker of Standard Bengali.
Bengali dialects can be split in two ways: spoken vs. literary variations, and regional variations.
