Bodo–Garo languages are a small family of Sino-Tibetan languages spoken in eastern India. The name Bodo is not related with the Tibetan ethnonym bod, which is the basis of the names Bodic and Bodish.
Bodo–Garo consists of two well defined branches:
Bodo, Dimasa, Tiwa (Lalung), Tripuri (Kokborok, Reang, Usoi), Kachari, Hojai, Moran (extinct) Garo
Garo and Megam
Bodo is an official language of the Indian state of Assam. Kokborok, or Tripuri, is one of the principal languages of the state of Tripura. Megam has been strongly influenced by Khasic languages.
