Ethnologue: Languages of Nepal is the product of a collaboration effort between the SIL Ethnologue and the Central Department of Linguistics of Tribhuvan University, Nepal. It was our goal to review and revise the information listed in the Ethnologue for each language in Nepal. This goal grew into a shared vision to publish this information and related language maps in this bilingual English-Nepali volume.

Copies are available from the SIL Nepal Office A large scale map showing the language areas is also available.

The map is available from Wisdom Books, Pulchowk, Kathmandu, Nepal.
