Old Chinese Perspective
Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
Subject Language(s): Chin, Siyin (csy)

The phonology, morphology and semantics of six Northern Chin languages are
investigated in terms of their relationships with Old Burmese and Old Chinese.
Regular correspondences are achieved through a vertical two vowel system and a
segmentally derived three tone system. A word list with reconstructed Northern
Chin forms, of which several are used in the comparisons with Old Burmese and
Old Chinese throughout the work, is included as an appendix.
