Spoken L1 Language: Milang

Comments on subclassification

Mark Post and Roger Blench 2011

AES status:
Milang (NOCODE_Milang-NOCODE_Milang) = 6b (Threatened).

Milang, a Tibeto-Burman language of the Siangic subgroup, is missing a distinct language ( Grewal, Dalvinder Singh 1997 , Mark W. Post and Yankee Modi 2011 , Aduk Tayeng 1976 ), first identified as such by Duff-Sutherland-Dunbar, George 1916: 10-11 with a wordlist from an L2 speaker. The name occurs under the hodge-podge entry Adi [adi] (a highly ambiguous term, see Singh, K. S. 1994: 17-20 , Mark Post 2013: 86-88 ) which unites the names of several very different languages. Milang is not intelligible with any of them ( Sun, Tianshin Jackson 1993: 473 ). See also: Bori-Karko [adi].
