A Nubri Lexicon
Dubi Nanda Dhakal
Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal
This is the first glossary of Nubri, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in the bordering villages between Nepal and Tibet. The inhabitants of these places are known as Nubripas in local language. The Government of Nepal, however, has enumerated them as Larke as one the indigenous nationalities. In the local language the term nubri is composed of two words, nup 'west', ri 'hill', and literally the term refers to the language spoken in the western hills. This lexicon contains 2100 words organized according to Nubri, English and semantic fields.
