Title: North East Indian Linguistics
Edited By: Stephen Morey

URL: http://www.cambridgeindia.org/showbookdetails.asp?ISBN=9788175966000
Description:

From Cambridge University Press India

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.
