INTRODUCTION

The existing practice of animal sacrifice by strangling on the Siva Chaturdasi day is also a Vedic survival. It is significant that the Assamese woman's undergarment mekhela is a phonetic variation of mekhala, which was a girdle for woman or Brahmhcari in Vedic times. But the greatest cultural influence of the Aryans, which also brought unity among the
diverse tribes, and races of the province however, was the language. Sanskrit not only became the language of the court, it also became the medium of expression for poets, philosophers and preachers. Modern Assamese as an. Aryan speech developed out of the Sanskrit as early as the 10th century A.D.

The language that is spoken by the majority of the people of the State is Assamese. This Aryan language checked the spread of Tibeto -Burmese language in Assam. It, however, took some words from these languages. Assamese, is a very developed language and has a good old literature. Modern Assamese language is very vigorous.
