Chapter Summary

This section of the book A Grammar of Dhimal presents a list of books along with their author names, publication dates and the page numbers in which they are referred to. The book focuses on the Dhimal language. Dhimal is a Tibeto-Burman language. The Dhimal inhabit the rich alluvial lowlands known as the Tarai or Terai. The Dhimal traditionally constructed pile dwellings of rough timber with mud-covered wattle walls and thatched roofs. These were primarily one room structures with a sleeping area and a cooking area raised above the ground three to five feet. Paradoxically, many Dhimal have internalised the dominant Hindu orthodoxy regarding caste position and pollution which they abhor when it is applied to themselves.

Keywords: Dhimal; Tarai; Tibeto-Burman language
