The country of Nepal is home to over one hundred distinct languages
from four language families. The current volume provides grammars,
glossaries and texts for two of these languages: Kristine
A. Hildebrandt's grammar and glossary of Manange, of the Tamangic
branch of the Tibeto-Burman language family, and Barbara Kelly's
grammar and glossary of Sherpa, of the Tibetan (Bodish) branch. Each
grammar provides a full description of the phonology, morphology and
syntax of the language, covering both the structural and functional
properties of each. The glossaries contain lists of basic vocabulary,
alternate forms, and comparisons with forms given in previous
literature. The short texts provide insights into how speakers weave
linguistic structures to produce fluent discourse.
