Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of concepts covered in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book focuses on both descriptive and correlative analysis of Rabha. The correlative part aims at a synoptic view of Rabha, Bodo and Garo, all of which belong to a close-knit group of Tibeto-Burman languages. The research aims, first and foremost, at discovering the warp and woof of Rabha, and thus, providing as detailed a descriptive account of the language as possible. With the help of existing descriptions of Bodo and Garo, the second stage of the research proposes to make a correlative analysis of Rabha, Bodo and Garo in order to gain a picture of their inter-relatedness and divergence.

Keywords: Bodo family; Garo; Rabha community; Tibeto-Burman languages
