INTRODUCTION TO THE DACCA DIALECT OF BENGALI.
RAY, PUNYA SLOKA; AND OTHERS
THIS INTRODUCTORY STUDENT'S TEXT IS BASED ON A MODIFIED FORM OF BENGALI, AS SPOKEN IN AND AROUND DACCA, THE CAPITAL CITY OF EAST PAKISTAN. THE TEXT CONSISTS OF A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH AND DACCA BENGALI PHONOLOGY, AND 15 LESSON UNITS, ACCOMPANIED BY TAPES CORRELATED WITH THE CONVERSATION BUILDUPS AND DRILLS. THE MATERIAL IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP ORAL SKILLS BEFORE INTRODUCING THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE. THE GENERAL FORMAT AND METHODOLOGY OF THIS BOOK FOLLOW "AN INTRODUCTION TO BENGALI, PART I," BY EDWARD C. DIMOCK AND OTHERS, EAST WEST CENTER PRESS, 1965. THIS EARLIER TEXT BY DIMOCK, HOWEVER, WAS BASED ON THE "STANDARD COLLOQUIAL" BENGALI WHICH IS SPOKEN THROUGHOUT WEST BENGAL AND EAST PAKISTAN AND WHICH DIFFERS FAIRLY RADICALLY IN PHONOLOGY, MORPHOLOGY, AND LEXICON FROM THE BENGALI OF DACCA.
