New Language Found in India

A ‘hidden’ language spoken by only about a thousand people has been discovered in the remote northeast corner of India – while the 2010 Commonwealth Games were taking place in Delhi.

The new language is called Koro.  It was thought that the language was a dialect of the Aka culture, a tribal community that subsists on farming and hunting near the border with China and Tibet.  However, further research has shown that there are more differences than first thought, including completely different vocabulary and some important differences in linguistic structure.
