Tips:

Assamese has derived its phonetic character set and its behavior from Sanskrit. It is written using the Assamese script. Assamese is written from left to right and top to bottom, in the same manner as English.

The Assamese language has the following characteristic morphological features: Transitive verbs are distinguished from intransitive. Gender and number are not grammatically marked. There is lexical distinction of gender in the third person pronoun. The agentive case is overtly marked as distinct from the accusative. Kinship nouns are inflected for personal pronominal possession. A passive construction may be employed idiomatically. Adverbs can be derived from the verb roots.
