Abstract

The book A Grammar of Jero is the main spin-off of the descriptive research on the Wambule language of eastern Nepal. This book offers the first-ever published detailed analysis of the phonology, morphology and syntax of Jero, the previously undescribed and endangered Kiranti language most closely related to Wambule. The presentation of this short grammar owes a great deal to the exhaustive grammar of Wambule, allowing easy comparison between the two closely related languages. The book also contains a historical comparative study of the Kiranti languages, the branch of the Tibeto-Burman language family to which both Jero and Wambule belong. This systematic reconstruction is the most recent and complete study of Proto-Kiranti to date and supersedes all earlier lexical and phonological comparisons of Kiranti languages.
