[Extract] Mising is an underdescribed language from the Eastern Tani branch of the Tani subgroup Tibeto-Burman (Figure 1). It is currently spoken by approximately 587,310 Mising tribes peoploe living primarily in eight distrivts of upper Assam, namely Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Sibsagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, and Sonitpur (Census of India 2001). There are at least nine regional varieties of Mising: Pagro, Delu, Ojam, Saajan, Moojin, Dambug, Samuguria, Tamargoja and Bonkual, of which the last three groups have largely adopted Assamese (an Indo-Aryan language) in preference to Mising for the majority of language situations.
