Overview: Marathi is a major language of India, widely spoken in Maharashtra and adjacent states. It is the official language of Maharashtra and Goa and the 14th most spoken language in the world. Konkani is a smaller family of languages spoken within the same region. Close similarities between Marathi and Konkani trace to the geographical proximity of speakers and a strong Marathi influence on the various Konkani languages. Most of the people groups assigned to the Marathi-Konkani people cluster are castes (occupational subgroups) of Hindu peoples.
