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 presents a list of inflexional paradigms in Dhimal. The complex Dhimal pronominal agreement system contributes to a better understanding of the development of pronominalisation in the family. Linguistically, Dhimal is related, though mututally unintelligible, to the Rai, Limbu, Newar and other Tibeto-Burman languages spoken in the hills of Nepal.

Keywords: Dhimal; Dhimal pronominal agreement system; inflexional paradigms; Tibeto-Burman language
