Abstract

Dolakhā Newār is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in the village of Dolakhā, approximately 145 kilometres to the east of Kathmandu, Nepal. 1 1

Funds for this study were provided by the National Science Foundation, grant BNS-8811773.

The language has been referred to as Dolakhāli, Dolakhā (Newār), and Dolakhāe. The latter form contains the genitive morpheme = e, thus means ‘of Dolakhā’, and is the form used by the speakers to refer to themselves and their language. I will use the terms Dolakhāe and Dolakhā Newār interchangeably.
