Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Himalayan Languages and Linguistics contains the table of contents and the note on contributors. The greater Himalayan region is the principal meeting point for the two largest language families of the world, Indo-European and Tibeto- Burman. Tibeto-Burman languages established themselves on the southern slopes, while the speakers of Indo- Aryan and Iranian languages entered these mountainous regions along the river valleys from the south and, then again, from the northwest.

Keywords: Himalayan languages; linguistics; Tibeto-Burma language
