Description:
Based generally on the Functional/Typological approach to Grammar, this grammar sketch documents a minority Tibeto-Burman language of Nepal, spoken by a Buddhist people group in the mountains north and somewhat north-east of Kathmandu. Some parts of this Grammar Sketch also appear in the Yohlmo-Nepali-English Dictionary (Hari, Anna Maria and Chhegu Lama: 2004). This is especially the case for the first two sections: (1) Introduction and (2) Phonology
