I’m very pleased to announce the most recent release of Himalayan Linguistics, 18.1/2019, which has a themed issue and also a grammar in the “Archives and Field Reports Section.”


The themed issue is “Verb Agreement in Languages of the Eastern Himalayan Region,” co-edited by Linda Konnerth and Scott DeLancey. It features 10 article contributions and two overviews, and these provide valuable documentation, analysis, and discussion of argument indexation or verb agreement systems in several Tibeto-Burman languages spoken in the hills along the eastern border of India.

The grammar/archives contribution is a comprehensive grammar of Dzongkha, co-authored by Karma Tshering and George van Driem, which includes grammar lessons. It also includes three supplemental ZIP-ed sets of audio files.

Special note: Due to file size, the grammar may take awhile to load on the screen-reader. We also include a ZIP-ed version of the grammar for download and be read locally on your computer’s hard drive.

I would once again like to thank the HL editorial and advisory boards, and also the anonymous peer reviewers whose efforts resulted in these excellent contributions. I wish in particular to thank the HL copy-editor, You-Jing Lin, and the students who assisted her with the proofs and final version preparation process.

Himalayan Linguistics is a free, peer-reviewed web journal and archive devoted to the study of the languages of the Himalayas. Authors who are interested in submitting a manuscript for peer review to Himalayan Linguistics may consult the “Submission Gudelines” link:
