 Bangla Language and Script
Major difference in sadhu and calit Bengali is in the pronominal forms, finite and nonfinite verb, indiclinables and adverbs, use of tatsama (Sanskrit) words, formation of compounds, word orders etc. When two styles are mixed, special mistake appears which is known as guru-candali error.
The inadequacy of written documents of immediate Pre-Bengali period is one of the most important limi-tations to find out the gradual change from Apabhramsa, Avahattha to the historic period of Bengali (16th century AD).

 Sylheti Literature; images of printed and manuscript Sylheti literature
Firstly, Sylheti is the language of choice not just of the illiterate, but also of educated Sylhetis who can function well in Bengali when they choose to.
There are two things that make Sylheti an important language in its own right, and not a colloquial or 'peasant' corruption of Bengali as some have alleged.
Some Bengali writers have called the script 'Devanagri' or Hindi, quoting from a book by a British author 100 years ago who had not himself seen any examples, but this too is wrong.
