part of the Chakhesang tribe speaks the Chokri language.
The Chakhesang are regarded as a major tribe in Nagaland.
Changkhesang is constructed as an acronym of the three names,
Cha Chakru , khe kheza , Sang
The Chokri language is closer to Angami
than to Kheza or Sangtam.
Roman script is used for writing the Chokri language. The letter
X and Udoes not occur in the
Chokri vocabulary. The missionaries would take the
main credit for introducing the script. However tones are
not marked in this language.
Chokri Language Committee set up in 1968 has been
taking the active role in providing consultation to those
engaged in material production for schools.
