Language Gallery

The Language Gallery displays charts showing the languages of the world – Asia, India and those of North East India.

North East India as a whole is home to more than two hundred languages, and many more dialects. Although most of the languages in the region belong to the Tibeto-Burman sub-family of the Sino-Tibetan family, the languages are highly heterogeneous and are often mutually unintelligible.

The region also boasts of a large number of Indo-Aryan and Austro-Asiatic language speakers. This diversity may have something to do with the rugged and harsh terrain which may have constrained intensive interactions between villages and so perhaps for long prevented a commonly shared language from coming into existence.
