Description:

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 (www.iias.nl).
