Noakhailla (নোয়াখাইল্লা)

Noakhailla is an eastern Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 7 million people mainly in the Greater Noakhali District in the Chittagong Division in the southeast of Bangladesh, and in the south of Tripura state in the northeast of India. There are also speakers of Noakhailla in other parts of Bangladesh, and in Europe, the Middle East and the USA.

Noakhailla is spoken by the Noakhailla people, and is used as a lingua franca by Kok-Borok and Chakma peoples in order to interact with the Noakhaillas.

Noakhailla is also known as Noakhali Bengali or Noakhalian. It is classified as a dialect of Bengali by some people. The language has no official status and there is a shift to Bengali, particularly among younger Noakhailla people.

In the past Noakhailla was written with the Arabic script. Nowadays Latin and Eastern Nagari (Bengali) alphabets are used.
