This book is more than the first comprehensive description of the fascinating and complex (endangered) language of the Wambule Rai, one of the Kiranti tribes of eastern Nepal; it is a true model for a holistic approach on language documentation, where the phonetics, phonology, morphophonology, morphology, morphosyntax, syntax and pragmatics are interwoven into one organic, living whole.An exhaustive reference work for Tibeto-Burman linguistics, language typology, linguistic theory and Wambule society and culture, and as such indispensable for any linguistic and anthropological library.With financial support of the International Institute for Asian Studies.
