The Central Instiitute of Indian Languages is concerned with the development of Indian Languages can take place by their use of new domains, which requries development of materials and methods and manpower for work in the areas of codification, standarisation and modernisation. The work of the Institute encompasses basic research, material production and in service training. The Institute is also entrusted with the responsibility of assisting and improving the teaching of Indian languages at various levels by developing new methods, models and materials and by making use of modern technology. The six Regional Language Centers are engaged in regular language teaching programmes. The Institute is also a clearing ouse of information relating to Indian languages

A major programmer of the institute is the study of tribal and other minor languages resulting in a grammar and a dictionary. This study helps in codification of these languages and also standarisation, which are primary steps for the development of any language. The linguistic description is also a pre-requisite for preparation, of language materials. It thus forms part of the Institute’s work to improve trail education. The Institute is also engaged in finding out shared features between tribal languages and major languages which are an important component in the making of India as a linguistic area.

The grammatical description of tribal and other minor languages do not raise and discuss theoritical question are dealt with by the authors in papers. Thegrammars try to give a basic knowledge of the structure of these languages with the hope that they will be useful to languages teachers and to linguists interseted in marco studies of languages. These grammars also fill in the gaps in the knowledge of the linguist heritage of the country by describing lesses known languages.

I hope that this publication will encourage futher grammatical research in the concerned language and related languages.
