Chapter Summary

Anong belongs to the Tibeto-Burman language family. However, is it a separate language? What languages in the Tibeto-Burman language family are close to Anong? How should Anong be subgrouped within Tibeto-Burman? These questions must be answered for any newly discovered language. This chapter discusses these questions in detail. Similarities in grammatical structures are an important basis for determining genetic relatedness among languages. The examination of the grammatical structures among the four Nung languages reveals that Zauzou and Nusu are close to each other, and Anong and Trung are close to each other. Tibeto-Burman has several hundred languages. Among the Tibeto- Burman languages spoken in China, the overall characteristics of Anong and Trung are close to those of the Jingpo languages. The chapter finally looks at the basic features of the Jingpo subgroup through comparing the sound systems, lexicon, and grammatical structures of the languages in the Jingpo subgroup.

Keywords: Anong; grammatical structures; Jingpo languages; lexicon; Nung languages; Nusu; Tibeto-Burman language family; Trung; Zauzou
