E16/E17 has two entries in its Northern Kuki-Chin subgroup Purum Naga [puz] (in
India) and Purum [pub] (across the border in Burma). Not surprisingly, they are
the same language and were recognized as such ( George A. Grierson 1904: 263 )
before the British empire was split up. See also: Purum [pub].
