Maybe, and I do find phonological shifts interesting, but this has
nothing to do with the original discussion. Javier Sola had contended
that only "Bangla," and never "Bengali," was the correct
English-language name to use for that language. Many people on this
list can easily see the phonological relationship between "Bangla" and
"Bengali," or for that matter between "Kolkata" and "Calcutta."
