Abstract

NK: At school level, the medium of teaching was Hindi. In my class, most of the students used to speak Hindi (standardized Khari Boli) at home, but some spoke Maithili, Bhojpuri, Bangla or Magahi (a variety of Hindi) at home. The vocabulary of these languages is similar to that of Hindi with minor variations. In fact, Hindi has more than eighteen related varieties. So, Hindi was the medium of instruction, but at times one could see the influence of native languages on the Hindi used in class. For example, Hindi verb forms vary with gender, but in Magahi, the verb forms are gender neutral.
