Languages of the Himalayas
An Ethnolinguistic Handbook of the Greater Himalayan Region containing an Introduction to the Symbiotic Theory of Language
Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 2: South Asia
The survey work 'Languages of the Himalayas' provides a bird's eye view of
Himalayan languages and language communities. It also constitutes a primary
source for much new, hitherto unpublished data on several languages. The
demographic mosaic of the Himalayas today is viewed in a historical and
comparative linguistic perspective. The reader will find an outline of the
historical and prehistorical developments that have determined the modern
ethnolinguistic composition of the Himalayan region, involving various
independent linguistics stocks or language families. Maps illustrate the
distribution of language communities and trace the routes of ancient
migrations. There is an illuminating discussion of grammatical features
found in Himalayan languages.
