Hajong is spoken by about 175,000 people in Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and West Bengal in India, and in Mymensingh District in Bangladesh. It is considered an Indo-Aryan language with a Tibeto-Burman substrate. The old Hajong language (Khati Hajong) was a Tibeto-Burman language possibly related to Garo and Bodo, but the language got mixed with Assamese and Bengali.
Hajong is written with the Latin and Assamese scripts in India. In Bangladesh the Bengali script is generally used.
