Abstract:

"Himalayan Languages and Linguistics" gathers together nine outstanding andoriginal contributions on the Tibeto-Burman and Indo-Aryan languages of thisimportant and culturally diverse mountainous area. Filling a marked gap in ourunderstanding of the languages of this underdocumented region, the collectionoffers a snapshot of the state of the field of Himalayan language research andlinguistic comparison.

Drawing on primary fieldwork in China, India, Nepal and Pakistan, as well as oncomparative sources, the new analyses outlined in these contributions willinterest a readership of linguists, philologists, anthropologists, historians,lexicographers and specialists in the languages and cultures of Inner and SouthAsia.

Contributions cover topics as diverse as linguistic palaeontology, orthographicalstandardisation, dialectology, phonology, morphology, semantics and syntax.
