West Himalayish languages
|Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand (India), Nepal|
The West Himalayish languages, also known as Almora and Kanauric, are a family of Sino-Tibetan languages centered in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and across the border into Nepal. LaPolla (2003) proposes that the West Himalayish languages may be part of a larger "Rung" group.
The languages include:
- Lahaulic: Pattani (Manchad), Tinan
- Gahri (Bunan)
- George van Driem (2001) Languages of the Himalayas: An Ethnolinguistic Handbook of the Greater Himalayan Region. Brill.
- LaPolla, Randy. 2001. The Tibeto-Burman Languages of Uttar Pradesh.
