|Title:||Tibeto-Burman subgroups and historical grammar||Contributor(s):||van Driem, George (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/16547||Open Access Link:||https://escholarship.org/uc/item/2641q8vv||Abstract:||Several distinct strains of thought on subgrouping, presented in memory of David Watters and Michael Noonan, are united by a golden thread. Tamangic consists of Tamangish and maybe something else, just as Shafer would have wanted it. Tamangic may represent a wave of peopling which washed over the Himalayas after Magaric and Kiranti but before Bodish. There is no such language family as Sino-Tibetan. The term 'trans-Himalayan' for the phylum merits consideration. A residue of Tibeto-Burman conjugational morphology shared between Kiranti and Tibetan does not go unnoticed, at least twice. Black Mountain Mönpa is not an East Bodish language, and this too does not go unnoticed.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Himalayan Linguistics, 10(1), p. 31-39||Publisher:||University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1544-7502||Field of Research (FOR):||200406 Language in Time and Space (incl Historical Linguistics, Dialectology)||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||970120 Expanding Knowledge in Language, Communication and Culture||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.escholarship.org/uc/item/2641q8vv||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 123
