Khasi is an Austroasiatic language spoken primarily in Meghalaya state in India by the Khasi people. In the past, the Khasi language had no script of its own. William Carey attempted to write the language with the Assamese script between 1813 and 1838. A large number of Khasi books were written in the Assamese script. Khasi has a pervasive gender system. There are four genders in this language:u masculine, ka feminine, i diminutive, ki plural.
