Summary of deposit
This project will produce a descriptive grammar of Monsang, a Tibeto-Burman language of the Northwestern subbranch of Kuki-Chin. Monsang is spoken by about 2,000 people across six villages in Chandel District, Manipur, Northeast India. This will be the first ever comprehensive grammatical description of a NWKC language to be based on a rich text corpus. The research represents a collaboration between Scott DeLancey, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Oregon; Linda Konnerth, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oregon; and Koninglee Wanglar, PhD student in linguistics at Manipur University and affiliated with the Monsang Arts and Culture Association.
