dc.description.abstract This paper describes a sketch grammar of Chang, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Nagaland state, north-east India. The sketch grammar uses data collected from a fieldwork in Nagaland. The data includes an elicited 800-wordlist and 2 narrative texts. The chapters of the grammar are mainly divided into phonology and morphosyntax. In the phonology chapter, Chang has 17 consonant phonemes and 7 vowel phonemes. There are also 3 tonemes: high level, low level and falling. The morphosyntax chapters covers word classes, nominal morphology, verbal morphology and ending with grammatical functions. Chang uses constituent order and ergativity to prescribe grammatical functions. It is hoped that this paper will shed a little more light on the Chang languages and other Tibeto-Burman languages in the Nagaland.
