Historical information: Lotha Naga is a Tibeto-Burman language of Nagaland in northeast India. These elicitation sessions were carried out as part of Daniel Bruhn's (2014) Berkeley PhD dissertation, 'A Phonological Reconstruction of Proto-Central Naga'.
Scope and content: Materials from elicitation sessions, including audio recordings, field notes, elicitation preparation documents, lexical lists, metadata files, Transcriber files (Transcriber 1.5.1), linguistic analyses, and an associated PhD dissertation (Bruhn 2014). Elicitation focused primarily on lexical items, with some grammatical discussion, songs, texts, and cultural/linguistic topics.
