Chapter Summary

The research upon which this book is based, was carried out over a period of eight years, from 1991 until 1999. Grammars of lesser-known languages typically attempt to represent the speech of a narrowly defined community, often one village out of scores or hundreds of villages whose inhabitants are considered speakers of the language. The present study is the first extensive grammatical description of the Tshangla language. Being based as it is on the analysis of a large text corpus, this grammar has the advantage of being inductive rather than deductive, i.e. rather than approaching the language with a template of the constructions which must be described and seeking to find them, the attempt is to allow the nature of the language itself to determine the shape of the description.

Keywords: Tshangla grammar; Tshangla language
