Chapter Summary

This section of the book Rabha contains a list of Rabha vocabulary. The Goalpara District of Assam, lying between the Brahmaputra and the State of Meghalaya, is the homeland of the Rabhas. The book aims at discovering the warp and woof of Rabha and provide as detailed a descriptive account of the language as possible. The methodology of intimate contact with the language in its natural setting of actual day-to-day use was preferred to that of extracting data from a few informants outside the natural language context. On the morphological level, while Bodo and Rabha share certain common features such as the causative prefixes, which are absent in Garo, in other areas, such as the presence of a larger set of derivational verb suffixes, Bodo and Garo are closer.

Keywords: Bodo; Garo; Rabha
