Boro[2] (बरʼ or बड़ो [bɔɽo]), also rendered Bodo,[3] is a Sino-Tibetan language spoken primarily by the Boros of Northeast India and the neighboring nations of Nepal and Bangladesh. It is an official language of the Indian state of Assam, predominantly spoken in the Bodoland Territorial Region.[4][5] It is also one of the twenty-two languages listed in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India.[6] Since 1975 the language has been written using the Devanagari script. It was formerly written using Latin and Eastern-Nagari scripts. Some scholars have suggested that the language used to have its own now lost script known as Deodhai.
