Title Review

This compendium of nineteen papers makes efforts at understanding the endangerment of cultural and linguistic perspectives of people living in the Northeast region of India. Presenting a linguistic and cultural overview of Hruso, it discusses at length the endangered language and culture in the context of Chakma of Arunachal Pradesh.

Taking a close look at the Missing, a tribal society in transition, it deals with the endangered cultures and dialects of Tangsas andTai Phake community, food habits of Assamese society, cultural affinity of different linguistic groups of the Northeast, the challenges for the maintenance of the Mao Naga indigenous dialect, and the status and safeguarding of Lepcha language in Sikkim and Darjeeling.
