A Grammar of Dumi (A Dissertation by NETRA MANI RAI - 2016)This study presents a linguistic description of the Dumi language (639-3; dus) within the framework of the functional-typological grammar (FTG) developed by Givón (2001) and further supplemented by Dixon (2004), Dryer (2006), Haspelmath (2004) and De Lancey (2010). Dumi is a poorly described Kirati language of the Rai group, spoken by an ethnic group 'Dumi' residing mainly in Khotang District. This is a field-based linguistic study of the grammatical features of the Dumi language. It employs naturally occurring texts, supported by elicited sentences collected from the Dumi speaking areas basically from the Makpa area.
