Abstract: Zeme is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in the Dima Hasao district of Assam state, Northeast India. It is a critically underdocumented language, and existing linguistic work on it is few and far between. This thesis investigates the phonology of Zeme, with a focus on segmental phonology, based on phonetic and phonemic transcription and analysis of the language from recorded audio data of native speakers provided to me. Zeme is established to have a phonemic inventory and syllable structure similar to its dialects, Liangmai and Rongmei, and is also a tonal language expected of a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Southeast Asia.
