Merge?[edit]

I have followed User:N-true's suggestion and proposed that this page be merged with Rajasthani languages. The two articles cover identical material.

"Rajasthani languages" page can be merged with this one but NOT vice versa. As "Rajasthani" is the language of Rajasthan NOT LANGUAGES.

I agree please merge but I am not expert enough to do it, expert will need to do it. Goldenrowley 23:42, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
Is "Rajasthani" an actual standardized literary form, or is it just the sum of the various dialects spoken in Rajasthan? This ought to be made clear. john k 20:12, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Relation to Hindi[edit]

According to the Hindi Heartland article, Rajasthan falls within the "Hindi Belt". How exactly are they related? --Maurice45 (talk) 19:04, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

The state of Rajasthan accepts Hindi as its official language. From the point of view of linguistics, there is a distant relation between Rajasthani language cluster and the "core" Hindi languages- Western Hindi and Eastern Hindi languages in that both the groups belong to the Central zone, and even that is somewhat disputed as some classifications put Rajasthani along with Gujarati into a separate 'Western zone'.Maquahuitltalk! 04:41, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Actually when india got freedom, a question of national language was raised by nationalists. now india had several regional languages and non of them was understood by all indians. so it was decided to make hindi as the official language. Rajasthani language at that time was considered as the dialect of hindi. Moreover to show that hindi linguistic groups count for more than 40% of indian population, several languages were dubbed as hindi. Unfortunately Rajasthani language has been neglected and no real efforts have been made to promote it or even preserve it. May be in near future we see some changes in attitude of Indian Government. --Onef9day (talk) 10:45, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Factual errors in the article.[edit]

In the article section Rajasthani language#Dialects, a number of dialects have been listed. But in the 2001 census of India, they consider these languages as different. Of course, they may have considerable similarities but I don't think its factually correct to group them into one, unless the government does so. And much of the links used to cite the article are dead, or does not contain anything related to the article. Major rewrite required. — Fιnεmαnn (talk) 23:42, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

I think the issue is that some people self-identify as "Rajasthani" speakers, while others identify with their particularly dialect (Marwari, Bagri, etc.). I suspect the Indian Census is write-in for mother tongue, or at least has a write-in option. In fact, all of these dialects under Hindi by the Indian government, as you can see in the census data (they have 400, 000 for the dialects they consider Hindi, and then they break it down to self-identification with particular "boliyan" or dialects).saɪm duʃan Talk|Contribs 06:11, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
