Chhattisgarhi is an Ardhamagadhi (Central) language while Oriya is a Magadhi (Eastern) language. There is, indeed, at least one dialect of Chhattisgarhi that is written in Oriya script and that may even be more similar to Oriya than to other dialects of Chhattisgarhi (see Grierson for a sample of this dialect). However, generally, Chhattisgarhi seems to be much more similar to Hindustani. --Kuaichik (talk) 04:10, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
