Löffler, p. 279: “I employed two informants, one Paangkhua who used Lorrain-Savidge’s [Lushai] dictionary of 1899, replacing English by Paang - this source will be referred to as the LP-dialect, and a Bawm, who used the Bawm-English dictionary (on which I have been working from time to time since 1965) - these data will be called the BP-dialect.”
