Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled A Grammar of Sunwar: Descriptive Grammar, Paradigms, Texts and Glossary contains the table of contents, list of abbreviations, list of illustrations, acknowledgements, organisation of the book and editorial foreword. The way Sunwar is spoken in the different villages is surprisingly uniform, considering the fact that Sunwar is spoken in a large area in which valleys are separated by mountain ranges. The Kiranti languages are divided into smaller groups of languages that show more resemblance with each other than with other members of the Kiranti languages group. The close relationship of Sunwar and Bahing is obvious and assumed in all classifications of Kiranti languages.

Keywords: Kiranti languages; sunwar speakers
