The phonology, morphology and semantics of six Northern Chin languages are investigated in terms of their relationships with Old Burmese and Old Chinese. Regular correspondences are achieved through a vertical two vowel system and a segmentally derived three tone system. A word list with reconstructed Northern Chin
forms, of which several are used in the comparisons with Old Burmese and Old Chinese throughout the work, is included as an appendix.
