The Khamti language (Thai:(ภาษาไทคำตี่, pasa tai kham dtee) is spoken in Sagaing, Myanmar and Assam, India (in the Dikrong Valley, Narayanpur, and north bank of the Brahmaputra) by the Khamti people. In modern Thai, which it has mutual intelligibility, khamti means "open words" or "open speech".
There are some 30 Khamti-speaking villages in Arunachal Pradesh, and 7 in Assam.
