Community-led documentation projects for the Tibeto-Burman languages Koro Aka and Hruso Aka moved along smoothly during 2016. Lexical and grammatical data collected by speakers massively expanded the linguistic resources available for both of these under-documented languages. Dr. Gregory D. S. Anderson and Dr. Bikram Jora undertook a trip to Arunachal Pradesh in February-March 2016.
A new project has been initiated with the Sartang of West Kameng, Arunachal Pradesh. We also renewed contacts with the Bugun of New Kaspi village. Furthermore, massive data sets on Bangru and Puroik were collected in 2016 and are being processed as we continue to bring the previously almost unknown languages of Arunachal Pradesh online.
All the data we collected will contribute to expanding our understanding of the linguistic pre-history of the Kameng region and lead to publications on that topic in the coming years.
