The verb agreement systems of Jinghpaw, Meyor, Northern Naga, and Northeast, Northwest and Southern Kuki-Chin contain material which is demonstrably inherited from Proto-Trans-Himalayan. Here we discuss morphological evidence that these systems share a common ancestor more recent than PTH. There is strong evidence connecting Jinghpaw with both Northern Naga and Kuki-Chin, and weaker evidence directly linking Northern Naga and Kuki-Chin, and both of these with Meyor. This is evidence that all of these languages belong to a single branch of the family, an idea which has been suggested in the past but never argued for.
Les systèmes d’accord verbaux des langues jinghpaw, meyor, naga du nord, et kuki-chin incluent des formes dont on peut démontrer l’origine proto-trans-himalayenne. Cet article présente des preuves morphologiques qui démontrent que ces systèmes descendent d’un paradigme ancestral plus récent que le proto-trans-himalayen. Les caractéristiques morphologiques communes entre jinghpaw et naga du nord sont très claires, et l’on trouve également des liens rapprochant le naga du nord avec le kuki-chin, et ces deux groupes avec le meyor. On propose que toutes ces langues appartiennent à une branche unique de la famille trans-himalayenne, une idée qui a été suggérée dans des publications antérieures mais jamais développée de façon argumentée.
