A Grammar of Wambule: Grammar, Lexicon, Texts, and Cultural Survey of a Kiranti Tribe of Eastern Nepal
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).
