Abstract: Abstract: Zo1 is a Northern Kuki-Chin language spoken in Manipur state, India and the Sagaing sub-division and, in Chin Hills of Myanmar respectively. It is a monosyllabic, agglutinating, nonrestricted tone language having two minimal tone pairs for most of its main verbs and adjectives, commonly referred to in Kuki-Chin literature as Stem1 and Stem2. Majority of the Zo2 verbs undergo morphophonemic changes called Lax-Tense alternations or Tone Alternations or Morphono-tonemic process. Since, it was first noted, some useful studies have been done. This paper describes the types of tones attested in Zo in particular, with the appearances of Stem2 verb tones, and it attempts to exhibit the pragmatic tone rules of this language in general.
