Bodo language, a branch of the Sino-Tibetan family of languages, is a language of the Bodo group under the Assam-Burmese group of languages. It is closely related to the Dimasa language of Assam, the Garo language of Meghalaya and also related to the language of Kokborok language spoken in Tripura.
