Karbi (Karbi (Mikir)) Bible

The Karbi language (US: (listen)), is spoken by the Karbi (also known as Mikir or Arleng) people of Northeastern India and north-eastern Bangladesh. It belongs to the Sino-Tibetan language family, but its position is unclear. Shafer (1974) and Bradley (1997) classify the Mikir languages as an aberrant Kuki-Chin branch, but Thurgood (2003) leaves them unclassified within Sino-Tibetan. Blench and Post (2013) classify it as one of the most basal languages of the entire family. There is little dialect diversity except for the Dumurali / Kamrup Karbi dialect, which is distinct enough to be considered a separate Karbi language.
