Awadhi is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 38 million people mainly in the Awadh (अवध) region of Uttar Pradesh in India, and also in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Nepal and Mauritius. It is closely related to Hindi and is considered by many as an Eastern dialect of Hindi.
Awadhi is also known as Abadhi, Abadi, Abohi, Ambodhi, Avadhi, Baiswari, Kojali and Kosali.
Awadhi is usually written with the Devanagari alphabet, or with the Kaithi alphabet, or with a mixture of the two. It was first appeared in writing during the 12th century in the work of Damodara Pandita.
Does anybody know where I can find details of the Awadhi alphabet and pronunciation?
