A mis-spelling of the word Sylheti (see definition under Sylheti) commonly used by ill educated outsiders who are not familiar with how the actual word is pronounced. This mis-spelling and hence mis-pronunciation of the word 'Sylheti' is prevalent amongst the lower classes in Bangladesh.
This ignoramus mis-spelt the word Sylheti and instead wrote sylethi.
