Other comments: Monsang is an endangered with about 2500 speakers only spoken

in Liwachangning village, Chandel district, Manipur, India. Though highly endangered, much is needed to study the language. It has three tones – level, low and high.

Eg.   /sùm/  “squeeze to dry”  /sum/  “ten”  /súm/  “mortar”

        /ìn/  “call”     /in/ “drink” /ín/ “curry”

Vowels:  ( i / e / a / u / o / ɤ / ə / )

Consonants:  

Stops ( p/ pʰ/ b/ t/ tʰ/ d/ ʈ/ ʈʰ/ c/ k/ kʰ/ ɡ/ ʔ/ ), Nasals (m/ m̥/ n/ n̥/ ŋ/ ),

Fricatives ( f/ v/ s/ z/ h ), Approximants ( r/ r̥/ l/ l̥/ ), Affricates ( pf/ ts/ tʃ/ dz/ )

The phonemes /ɡ/ and /f/ are found very limited in a few words. Among the vowels, the back vowel /u/ is sometimes nasalized and is of non-release nasal sound.
