Aim and Scope

The term "Himalayan" is used in its broad sense to include north-western and north-eastern India, where languages of Indo-Aryan, Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, and Austro-Asiatic linguistic stocks are spoken; the languages of Nepal, Bhutan and the Tibetan Plateau; the languages of northern Burma and Sichuan; and the languages of Nuristan, Baltistan and the Burushaski speaking area in the west.

Himalayan Linguistics welcomes submissions of journal articles, field reports, grammars, dictionaries, and text collections with a focus or with description or analysis of languages that fall within these areal or genealogical dimensions.
