Abstract  This survey report focuses on sociolinguistic research conducted among the Hajong community living in northern Bangladesh. The research was conducted in March 2005; its overriding purpose was to gather information that could tie into recent and ongoing language-development efforts among the Hajong in India. To meet this purpose, linguistic variation among the Hajong people living in Bangladesh and India was investigated, the long-term vitality of the Hajong language in Bangladesh was assessed, and issues regarding language attitudes, script, and current Hajong language and culture development efforts were studied.
