Case marking in Nubri

Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


This paper introduces the case marking system in Nubri, drawing on data from both Samagaun and Prok villages. Nubri, a Tibetic language, has ergative and dative morphological cases, but appears to have a dispreference for using morphological case where possible. This paper explores this issue, with a special focus on differential object marking, illustrating variation between two key dialects from opposite ends of the Valley.
