"Poiphang Ka Thawhi Ban Peiphang" is an article by award winning Khasi artist @warjri.raphael which was published in U Nongsaiñ Hima (Khasi newspaper) on the 15th of June 2022.
This is a wonderful article wherein Bah Raphael has attempted to coin new words in Khasi while giving their English equivalents. Khublei Shibun Bah @warjri.raphael for this article! 😀🙏👏
The coinage of words in a language will help it to grow, thereby sustaining it, adding to expression in speaking and writing. 🗣️✒️😄
