Chapter Summary

The appendix section of the book A Grammar of Dhimal presents texts from a variety of genres, riddles, songs, kinship terms, verb paradigms, a Dhimal-English glossary and bibliography. With this grammar, it is hoped that Dhimal will yield clues necessary to sort out the historical spread of Tibeto-Burman languages in this region. Text Two provided here explains the concept of catching rats in both Dhimal and English. The forests and grasslands of the upper reaches of the Gangetic plain were home until recently to a rich diversity of plant and animal life. Many of the creatures were hunted by the Dhimal, who employed a medium-sized breed of dog to track and corner game. Traps, nets and slingshots were also used to catch birds, fish and other small animals.

Keywords: animal life; catching rats; Dhimal; Gangetic plain; Tibeto-Burman languages
