[ The study provides the first comprehensive account of the phonological system of Lushai, a language spoken by about 300.000 people in Mizoram Province, India. While, in a broad sense, ‘generative’, it constitutes a critique of the standard variety of generative phonology and makes regular use of traditionl concept such as phoneme, conditioned morpheme alternation, etc. However, these concepts have been embedded in a new framework of phonological analysis that aims at a high degree of descriptive adequacy .]
