A thorough reference to the traditional language of a relatively small ethnic group in central Nepal numbering no more than 10,000, of which only about 2,000 still speak the language. It belongs to the Tamangic group of the Bodish languages, a branch of Tibeto-Burman. A short introduction and typological sketch is followed by an English-Chantyal dictionary, kinship charts, a Chantyal-English index, and five texts. The other 21 texts edited by Noonan are projected to appear separately. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
