Abstract

The Brokpa language, spoken in the two villages Merak and Sakteng in eastern Bhutan and adjacent parts of Arunachal Pradesh, is a hitherto undescribed Tibetic language (Trans-Himalayan). This special issue of Himalayan Linguistics presents the first account on several aspects of the phonology and grammar of the language. This introduction gives some general information about the Brokpa language, its phylogeny and linguistic profile and about the Brokpa Documentation and Description Project (BDDP). Additionally, the individual contributions of this special issue are shortly introduced and some formal conventions followed throughout this issue are laid out.
