Notes

Toofani Kaka, a resident of Sonwara village, works in the field of the researcher's family as a farm laborer. The researcher and his cousin Noman Shaikh visit him on the farm to get some recordings of the local language. Noman asks Toofani Kaka to narrate in Azamgarhi and not Bhojpuri. Though Toofani Kaka tried to do so in Azamgarhi, he could not succeed and continues in Bhojpuri with some code-switching to Azamgarhi as well as Urdu, which is quite evident from the recording.
