Tankhur Naga is a Tibeto-Burrnan language spoken by about 45 thousand persons inhabiting the hills to the north-eastof-Manipur valley in Eastern India, bordering Burma. According to Sir George Grierson, the number of dialects spoken by these tribes is very great, almost every village being said to have a distinct one. The present vocabulary is based on the speech of Mr. Shengreiso Susa, who speaks the dialect of Ukhrul, which is also considered to be the standard dialect.
