Munda: Sub-Stratum of Tibeto-Himalayan Languages

D.D. Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The present volume seven of the series, ‘Studies in Tibeto-Himalayan Languages? presents a detailed account of strikingly conversing phonological, morphological and syntactic features of Munda and Himalayan languages belonging to two ethnically and linguistically heterogeneous groups of people of the Indian sub-continent, presently inhabiting distant lands, thousands of miles away from one another and intervened by people of different ethnic and linguistic stocks. The linguistic details, with plethora of examples from both the linguistic groups, presented here, may not only be of special interest to linguist, but to historians and anthropologists as well, interested in the study of the people, inhabiting Himalayan regions of Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal. As such, it is hoped that these undisputable linguistic evidences presented here will inspire scholars of relevant disciplines to undertake the task of unearthing of the pre-historic mystery of the inhabitation of these Himalayan regions by the speakers of the Austro-Asiatic languages, who have left an everlasting deep impact on these Himalayan languages and of the circumstances which coupled them to leave their this Himalayan home.
