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. This section provides nine riddles in two languages: Dhimal and English. The grammar aids in determining the genetic relation of Dhimal to other languages in its family and reveals paths of interaction and influence among the lowland peoples of Nepal and the adjoining areas of India.

Keywords: Dhimal; Nepal; riddles; Tibeto-Burman languages
