Abstract : This short description results from the generous help many people gave me during my stay in Agartala (March the 27 th to April the 5 th 2002 ). I must confess I had never met before so many people anxious to help a linguist, and doing it so efficiently. Many of these people were linked with the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council and the Khumulwng institutions, which I also visited, and several also worked within the Kokborok Tei hukumu Mission . I cannot cite all of them, but let me give the names of kandai Utpal Debbarma ( who kindly managed to prepare my stay in Agartala ), Twimuk Prasenfit Debbarma, Bijesh Debbarma, koloy Debbarma, Nanda kumar Debbarma, and of course Bikash Roy Debbarma and Binoy Debbarma. To these people, and many others who visited me when I was in Agartala, I am very grateful and this short linguistic description is entirely thanks to them. Only the mistakes and blunders are mine.
