Abstract:

This book presents sixteen analyzed texts in Magar Kaike, a seriously endangered Tibeto-Burman language spoken by around 1000 ethnic Magar Kaike mainly in four villages, namely, Sahartara, Tupatara, Tarakot and Belawa/Lingdu within Sahartara Village Development Committee of Dolpa District, Midwestern Development Region of Nepal. These texts are related to the culture, traditions, folk tales, legends, daily activities and different aspects of life in the Magar Kaike speech community. Such texts, in this book, first, are transcribed phonetically. Secondly, each word in the texts is broken into morphemes. Thirdly, each morpheme is provided interlinear morpheme translations (glosses). Fourthly, each example or text is provided free translation in English. Apart from such texts, the book also provides some basic sociolinguistic information about the language.

This book, which is intended to be used by both the linguists and sociologists, is organized into three chapters. Chapter 1 presents background sociolinguistic information about the language. Chapter 2 presents the analyzed texts in the language. Chapter 3 presents summary and conclusion.

The author, PhD in linguistics, is researcher in Linguistic Survey of Nepal (LinSuN), Central Department of Linguistics, Tribhuvan University, Nepal. She has specialized in Tibeto-Burman linguistics, language documentation and sociolinguistic survey of the languages of Nepal.
