Chapter Summary

This section presents a Dhimal-English glossary in alphabetical order. Words are listed with aspirated and breathy phonemes following the voiceless and voiced counterparts respectively. Long vowels, nasal vowels and those ending in a glottal stop come after the simple vowels. The bulk of non-native words in Dhimal are loans from non-literary varieties of Indo-Aryan languages, primarily Bengali and Maithili, but also Nepali. Multiple uses are listed numerically with the most basic sense listed first. Finally, semantically related lexemes and Nepali equivalents of cultural objects or native flora and fauna are provided at the end of some entries.

Keywords: Dhimal-English glossary; Nepali language
