Word for the Travel Wise (07/07/06)

Bangladesh FlagBeen a long while since I dropped a Bangla word on you, so without delay here you go…

Today’s word is a Bangla (Bengali) word used in Bangladesh:

shobbho – civilized

Web resources for Bangla are few, but you can pick up quite a few words reading (not skimming) through the Wiki and from this Bangalinet site which has a small tutorial on how to write in the script. Beyond those two I’m sure there are others, but as I mentioned above it was like pulling teeth to get this word. With that being said class is dismissed.

Past Bangla words: bhromon
