[Extract] Galo is a Tibeto-Burman language of the Tani branch spoken by around 30,000-40,000 hill tribespeople in central Arunachal Pradesh state, northeast India. There are two major dialects, Lare (larèe) and Pugo (puugóo), and several minor dialects and subdialects; this chapter is based on the majority Lare dialect, as described by Post (2007). Galo's historical contacts with non-Tani languages appear to have been inextensive; within the last fifty to sixty years, contacts with Indo-European languages such as Assamese, English, and most recently Hindi have increased dramatically.
