This monograph is a grammar of Thangmi, an endangered Tibeto-Burman language spoken in the districts of Dolakha and Sindhupalcok in central-eastern Nepal. The language is spoken by upwards of 25,000 people belonging to an ethnic group of the same name. The Thangmi are one of Nepal's least documented communities.The book is comprised of three sections: a grammatical description of the Dolakha dialect of Thangmi, a collection of glossed oral texts and a lexicon with relevant examples. In addition, the reader will find an extensive ethnolinguistic introduction to the speakers and their culture.For students and scholars of anthropology and linguistics, this study is a compelling illustration of the interweaving of these disciplines in the context of Himalayan studies.With financial support of the International Institute for Asian Studies.
