Khariboli[edit]

Shouldn't the Khariboli in the list of Hindi languages be replaced with Hindustani, it 'only' being the main dialect of Hindustani? --JorisvS (talk) 09:43, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Bhojpuri[edit]

  • At least by some sources, it seems, Bhojpuri is mentioned along with (most of) the Hindi languages: [1]. Thoughts about what to do with this? --JorisvS (talk) 10:39, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
  • It looks like Bhojpuri should be removed from this article. Bhojpuri is listed on several pages as being a Bihari (Eastern Indic) language, not a Hindi (Central Indic) language. Nicole Sharp (talk) 09:53, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Hindi languages[edit]

Why is this page called Hindi languages when it's clearly only Central Zone Hindi encompassing only minor dialects?Filpro (talk) 16:58, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Hardly 'encompassing only minor dialects'. This is a subbranch of the Indo-Aryan branch, and as such includes multiple languages, including the de facto national language of India. The terms are synonymous: Central Zone = Hindi languages (though the other uses of 'Hindi' are not). --JorisvS (talk) 21:23, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
It is confusing. It is good that we did not use Glottolog otherwise it will become more subbranch. Any issue in just having Indo-European, Indo-Iranian, Indo-Aryan as simple qualification ? Something like Britannica http://www.britannica.com/topic/Hindi-language. We can still mention all Zone and branches in the separate sections on same page.PradeepBoston (talk) 19:37, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
