The Koro-Aka language ( Gregory D. S. Anderson and Ganesh Murmu 2010 ), a Siangic language of
Arunachal Pradesh, is missing from E16. (The Hruso [hru] entry mentions Koro (as
Aka) with the incoherent claim that it is a
'dialect' that shares 9% of its vocabulary with Hruso [hru]. This information is
presumably a misinterpretation of the unpublished 2005
survey ( Binny Abraham and Kara Sako and Elina Kinny and Isapdaile Zeliang 2005 ), which correctly identified Aka as
a separate language and contains a vocabulary and the lexicostatistical
comparison with the 9% figure.) This is the language arrogantly purported to be
newly discovered'' language by National Geographic's "Enduring Voices"
project and picked up by many major news outlets, e.g., BBC (5 October 2010:Indian language is new to science'' by Daniel Boettcher
20 October 2010). In fact, language data on Koro (as Miri-Aka) was published by
Grewal, Dalvindar Singh 1993 , Grewal, Dalvinder Singh 1997 and the existence of the
language (as a separate language) has been mentioned
(without data) in publications several times earlier, e.g.,
Sinha, Raghuvir 1962 :13-15 . See also: Hruso [hru].
