This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."

Title: Himalayan Languages and Linguistics
Subtitle: Studies in Phonology, Semantics, Morphology and Syntax
Edited By: Mark Turin
Bettina Zeisler
URL: http://www.brill.nl/himalayan-languages-and-linguistics
Series Title: Languages of the Greater Himalayan Region
Description:

"Himalayan Languages and Linguistics" gathers together nine outstanding and
original contributions on the Tibeto-Burman and Indo-Aryan languages of this
important and culturally diverse mountainous area. Filling a marked gap in our
understanding of the languages of this underdocumented region, the collection
offers a snapshot of the state of the field of Himalayan language research and
linguistic comparison.

Drawing on primary fieldwork in China, India, Nepal and Pakistan, as well as on
comparative sources, the new analyses outlined in these contributions will
interest a readership of linguists, philologists, anthropologists, historians,
lexicographers and specialists in the languages and cultures of Inner and South
Asia.

Contributions cover topics as diverse as linguistic palaeontology, orthographical
standardisation, dialectology, phonology, morphology, semantics and syntax.
