Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mru language is a part of Tibeto-Burman languages and one of the recognized languages of Bangladesh. It is spoken by a community of Mros inhabiting the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh and also in Burma with a population of 21,963 in Bangladesh according to the 1991 census. The Mros are the 2nd largest tribal group in Bandarban District of the Chittagong Hill Tracts. A small group of Mros also live in Rangamati Hill District. The Mru language is considered "definitely endangered" by UNESCO in June 2010. It is one of the Tibeto-Burman languages that is difficult to classify and has marginal affiliations with Burmic. Mru and Meithei in India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar, would appear close to Kuki-Chin languages. However, although once classified as Kukish, the Mru language is thought to be closer to Lolo-Burmese.show more
