Excerpt from change request document:

Makuri Naga and Para Naga share very low lexical similarity with Khiamniungan Naga. Inherent intelligibility should therefore be low. Ethnolinguistic identity is separate between these three groups (Makuri and Para each show signs of strong language vitality), and there is no known common literature. Also, there is not any known intermediate variety that would be intelligible to any pair of these three language groups.
