Performance of an imitation of the Far-north or Dewārā variety of Northern Azamgarhi

Description: This is a video recording of a monologue by eight year old Yusuf. He can be seen imitating the Far-north or Dewārā (floodplain) variety of the Northern dialect of Azamgarhi spoken in Mehrā, his mother’s village. Drawl is a stereotypical feature of that variety. Those speakers are often mocked by other speakers of Azamgarhi for their highly prolonged vowels.
