Haflong Hindi (Hindi: हफ़लौंग हिन्दी) is the lingua franca of Dima Hasao district of Assam state of India. It is a pidgin that stemmed from Hindi and includes vocabulary from several other languages, such as Assamese, Bengali, Dimasa and Zeme Naga. It is named after Haflong, which is the headquarters of Dima Hasao district.
The dialect is largely intelligible to Hindi speakers, and features simplified grammar with loanword infusions.
|hum tumko modot korne nahi sekega||I (implied) you (tumko) help (modot) can't (nahi sekega)||'I can't help you.'|
|tumra kuttaa se humko kamraayaa||Your (tumra) dog (kuttaa) me (humko) bit (kamraayaa)||'Your dog bit me.'|
|tum kaha jaigah||Where (kaha) you (tum) go (jaigah)||'Where will you go?'|
In contrast to printed forms of Hindi, the Haflong variety lacks person and number agreement in the verb and ergative marking of the subject when transitive clauses are in a preterite or perfect tense.
