Abstract:

This monograph is a grammar of Thangmi, an endangered Tibeto-Burmanlanguage spoken in the districts of Dolakha and Sindhupalcok in central-easternNepal. The language is spoken by upwards of 30,000 people belonging to anethnic group of the same name. The Thangmi are one of Nepal's leastdocumented communities.

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

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