Near the Karakorum mountains, an offshoot of the Himalayas, one of the most enigmatic languages of Asia is spoken: Burushaski. This book provides a wealth of investigations into this language. It deals with typology and grammar theory, the comparative method when applied to the dialects, internal reconstruction, as well as vocabulary and semantics. Due to its thorough research and thoughtful discussions, this work contributes significantly to ongoing linguistic debates.
