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.
