Description:

"North East Indian Linguistics Volume 3" presents the latest in descriptive
and anthropological linguistic research on 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 also remains to this day one of the least well-studied and
well-understood. The collection of papers in this volume directly address
this problem by presenting description and analysis of a wide variety of
phonological, syntactic, morphological, sociolinguistic and historical
topics in the study of several languages of the region.

This volume reflects the current state of research in North East Indian
Linguistics on the parts of local, national and international scholars
alike and will be of interest to linguists, anthropologists, and other
social scientists and general readers with an interest in the study,
preservation and appreciation of North East Indian cultural and linguistic
diversity.
