Stephen Morey's research is undertaken in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh States, India, as well in the neighbouring areas of Burma. His research covers three language groups: Tai, Singpho and Tangsa. Stephen has transcribed and analysed a large corpus of text in these various languages. In many cases the languages that Stephen is researching had never been recorded before he commenced his work. A huge number of recordings are now being archived to help preserve the linguistic diversity of the India-Burma border. A particular area of Stephen's interest is traditional song, particularly ritual songs. In 2016-19 he is leading a project to examine the Tangsa Wihu Song.
