Languages from India
I like this blog very much but I think you should add more languages from India like Bhojpuri, Magahi and Konkani.

Hi Saanvi,
Thank you for your interest. I always intended to add more, since very good sources are available now. Even Google Translate has now a wide choice of languages from India.
I have now added the ones you cite and also improved the source, since I have gathered remarks from users about the words used in the system for languages from both the Indo-Aryan and Dravidian families. I have also removed Indo-Aryan loan words from the Dravidian languages (Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada). The words sun, night and sometimes death are the ones for which Dravidian languages use Indo-Aryan (Sanskrit?) loans quite often - but there are Dravidian alternatives for all of them, even if these are considered archaic.
Here a few comparisons you can make within the Indo-Aryan family:
Hindi to Punjabi language comparison
Bhojpuri to Magahi comparison
Marathi to Konkani comparison
Nepali to Hindi comparison
Gujarati to Hindi comparison
Assamese to Marathi comparison
Bengali to Odia (Orya) comparison
Odia (Orya) to Marwari comparison
and here a few Dravidian comparisons:
Kannada to Telugu language comparison
Kannada to Malayalam comparison
Malayalam to Tamil comparison
and a Dravidian-Indo-Aryan comparison which illustrates how languages from south and north India are different!
Kannada to Hindi language comparison

Dear Vincent,
Thank you very much, this is very interesting. It would be nice to add more languages and dialects, whenever possible.
