  • Number of speakers:450,000
  • Locations spoken:Bangladesh, India
  • Related languages:Sanskrit, Manipuri, Bengali, Assamese


Close proximity with the Sauraseni-Maharastri Prakrit, highly influenced by Sanskrit. Some charateristics of Hindi, some denoting terms of Meitei and a little influence of Bengali and Assamese incorporated; after all Bishnupriya Manipuri is a different language, so Bishnupriya Manipuri Language demands to have a new wikipedia home page. I have so many pages to submit. There are so many Bishnupriya Manipuri people to visit this project.

  • Support. The ISO 639-3 code is "bpy" ("bpm" is for Biyom, spoken in New Guinea). I hope more Bishnupriya Manipuri people come and support this proposal. --Chamdarae 01:26, 28 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
