Documentation and Description of the Hrusso Aka Language of Arunachal Pradesh DESCRIPTION: This is a collection of Audio, video and textual language resources in Hrusso Aka, a language spoken by about 4000 speakers in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. Hrusso Aka is an interesting language because of its dissimilarities with other languages in the region. It is highly endangered due to the ongoing rapid language shift to Hindi. This collection contains various genre of natural and elicited language forms such as stories, mythology, conversations, songs, dances, word lists etc, and has been made possible by an IGS scholarship by ELDP and a long-standing collaboration between the researcher and members of the Hrusso Aka community.
In this video, Nima teaches and clears Anu's doubts on the usage and meanings of phrases in Hrusso Aka language
