This book is the first description of Kulung, a complex-pronominalising Kiranti (Tibeto-Burman) language spoken in eastern Nepal. It contains the phonology, morphology, and syntax as well as sample texts, verbal paradigms, and a Kulung-English lexicon. The data presented here were collected during four field trips which the author undertook to Nepal between 1992 and 1995. This grammar of Kulung is an exhaustive reference work for Tibeto-Burman linguistics, language typology, and linguistic theory. With financial support of the International Institute for Asian Studies (www.iias.nl).
