Title:Preliminary Phonology of Rera, a Tangsa Variety of Northeast india
Authors:Goswami, Dipyoti
Date Issued:03 Dec 2018
Abstract:This paper provides a synchronic phonological analysis of the Rera language, a Tangsa language of the Northern Naga subgroup of Tibeto-Burman. It is spoken by approximately 2,000 people in Northeast India. Based on the author’s own fieldwork, the study describes Rera Tangsa segmental phonology, tones, and phonotactics. It differs from four previously described Tangsa languages in that it does not distinguish aspiration. Rera does not distinguish diphthongs like three other Tangsa varieties but has a relatively simple vowel inventory with eight monophtongs, similar to Hawa-Lak with five monophthongs.
