Gujarati Language

Like many other regional languages of India, Gujarati is also a part of Indo-European family of languages and belongs to a Central Zone Indo-Aryan subfamily.  It is closely related to Punjabi and Hindi. The main Dialects of Gujarati language are Standard Gujarati, Gamadia Gujarati, Parsi Gujarati, Kathiawari Gujarati, Kharwa Gujarati, Kakari Gujarati, Tarimuki Gujarati and East African Gujarati. Gujarati is a descendent of Sanskrit but it is written in its own script known as Abugida script. Gujarati is one of the ancient languages of India that has its origins in Puranic Sanskrit (500-50 B.C.). Gujarati has been influenced by a number of languages due to continual invasion and conquest over the course of its history. A clear impression of languages like, Persian (Farsi), Arabic, Hindi/Urdu, Portuguese, and English can be seen on modern Gujarati.

Gujarati community is spread in many foreign countries but the largest groups of Gujarati-speaking populations outside India are found in the United Kingdom and in the United States. In UK, the two main centers of Gujarati speaking groups are Wembley and Leicester and in the United States, they are mainly found in New Jersey, New York, Texas, and California. In all such communities, language use is vibrant and employed in a number of forms of communication such as newspaper publications, radio, and everyday communication.
