Title: North East Indian Linguistics Vol. 2
Edited By: MarkWilliamPost
URL: http://www.cambridgeindia.org/showbookdetails.asp?ISBN=9788175967144&category_id=catct182
Series Title: Foundation Books
Description:

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.
