North East Indian Linguistics Volume 2 is the second in a series of selected papers presented at the International Conferences of the North East Indian Linguistics Society (NEILS), a forum for the study of the languages of North East India. The North East Indian languages are the richest and most diverse, yet also one of the least-well-known regions of the linguistics world. NEILS brings together local scholars, students, and well-known researchers from India and across the world to present the latest in research on North East Indian languages and cultures.
The book essentially discusses tonology and phonology in the Assam floodplain. They bring together extensive information on tone in Bodo and Dimasa, studies of Tai Phake songs, the Ahom Bar Amra manuscripts, and the Barpetia dialect of Assamese. A special section on numerals also presents a comparative study of Tibeto-Burman numeral systems and more detailed accounts of Khasi, Karbi, Kom and Aimol.
This book will be of interest to scholars specialising in South and South-East Asian languages and cultures, linguistic diversity and language endangerment.
