Abstract:

North East Indian Linguistics Volume 5 presents the latest in descriptive and anthropological linguistic research into the languages of the North East Indian region. Long acknowledged to be among the culturally and linguistically richest and most diverse regions of all Asia, North East India needs to be well-studied and well-understood to underscore its potential. 

This volume advances the understanding of North East Indian languages and cultures through analyses of a wide variety of topics in a range of regional languages. The themes discussed in this volume include language contact and genetic linguistics in the languages of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and neighbouring Bhutan, historical grammar within the Bodo-Garo and Mizo-Kuki-Chin branches of Tibeto-Burman, nominalization and the relational marking of noun phrases in North East Indian languages, and new advances in the study of Bodo-Garo phonology – in addition to contributions to the analysis of Eastern Indo-Aryan grammar and the song language of the Pangwa Tangsa. 

This book will be of interest to linguists, anthropologists, sociologists, and anyone with an abiding interest in the languages and cultures of this fascinating and understudied region.
