Title: Languages of the Greater Himalayan Region, Volume 6: A Grammar of the Thangmi Language (2 vols)
Subtitle: With an Ethnolinguistic Introduction to the Speakers and Their Culture
URL: http://www.brill.nl/languages-greater-himalayan-region-volume-6-grammar-thangmi-language-2-vols
Series Title: Languages of the Greater Himalayan Region
Description:

This monograph is a grammar of Thangmi, an endangered Tibeto-Burman
language spoken in the districts of Dolakha and Sindhupalcok in central-eastern
Nepal. The language is spoken by upwards of 30,000 people belonging to an
ethnic group of the same name. The Thangmi are one of Nepal’s least
documented communities.

These two volumes include a grammatical description of the Dolakha dialect of
Thangmi, a collection of glossed oral texts and a comprehensive lexicon with
relevant examples. In addition, the reader will find an extensive ethnolinguistic
introduction to the speakers and their culture.

For students and scholars of anthropology and linguistics, this study is a
compelling illustration of the interweaving of these disciplines in the context of
Himalayan studies.
