The North East of India is one of the most rich and diverse cultural-linguistic regions of Asia. However, awareness of this is not widespread and as a result, the linguistic abundance of the region has not been sufficiently appreciated. Students and scholars from different parts of India and the world are now making efforts to turn around this scenario. North East Indian Linguistics is a result of such concerted attempts. This book is the first published collection of selected articles on North East Indian linguistics. The articles represent the current state of research in the field. The authors have adopted a variety of approaches to the study of the multifarious North East Indian languages – Ao (Naga), Assamese, Atong (Bodo-Garo), Bishnupriya, Garo, Khamti (Tai), Khasi, Kurtoep, Singpho, and the Tani languages, Apatani, Galo and Mising. The areas addressed in this book include descriptive phonology, lexicon, morphosyntax and semantics. The book also discusses general topics regarding fieldwork and orthography development. North East Indian Linguistics will be of interest to students, scholars and professionals in South and South East Asian linguistics and related fields, particularly to those involved in the study of languages of Austro-Asiatic, Indo-Aryan and Tibeto-Burman stock. The book will also benefit those with a concern for minority and endangered languages, and cultures. Contents Introduction Foreword Phonology 1. Kurtöp Phonology in the Context of North East India 2.
