Roman Script written reversely is used as the script of the language; It has 28 consonants and eleven vowels, but no semi-vowels. All the vowels. This is a tone language. Three distinctive tonesrising, falling and level are onserved which split apart giving rise toseven tones.

This book is purposed to help adkinistrastor, officials and teachers who are serving in Arunachal Pradesh to carry on conversation in Lisu. Besides, a first hand knowedlge of the Lisu language may induce the anthropologist and the linguist to do further research on the Lisu and their language.
