Comments on family membership

Hruso-Aka [hru] is clearly not a Miji dialect as held by Shafer, Robert 1947. The shared lexicon is attributable to loans, and of what remains, there are insufficient Tibeto-Burman parallels for a Tibeto-Burman affiliation (Padun, Mahendra 1971), (Blench, Roger and Post, Mark 2011) (Anderson, Gregory D. S. and Murmu, Ganesh and Harrison, K. David 2013). The Kamengic group, Puroik, Miju, Mishmic and Koro-Milang show little Tibeto-Burman cognacy, but what they do show is slightly in favour of inheritance (rather than borrowing) since they occur in the basic vocabulary (Blench, Roger and Post, Mark 2011), (Burling, Robbins 2003), (Post, Mark and Blench, Roger 2011) (Anderson, Gregory D. S. and Murmu, Ganesh and Harrison, K. David 2013) and in grammar in the case of Koro-Milang (Anderson, Gregory D. S. and Murmu, Ganesh and Harrison, K. David 2013).
