Title: The Sounds and Tones of Kalam Kohistani: with Wordlists and Texts
Written By: Joan L.G. Baart
Description:

This volume starts a new series "Studies in Languages of Northern Pakistan," published jointly by the Summer Institute of Linguistics and the National Institute of Pakistan Studies in Islamabad. The series will include studies of the phonology, grammar, lexicon, and oral literature of Kalasha, Shina, Burushaski, and other languages of northern Pakistan. Kalam Kohistani (in the literature also known as Garwi or Bashkarik) belongs to the Dardic branch of Indo-Aryan. The current volume presents a sketch of the sound system and tonal system of this language, based on recent fieldwork. It also makes a wordlist and text data available for further study.
