This dissertation is a description of Darma, an under-documented Tibeto-Burman language spoken in the eastern corner of the state of Uttarakhand, India. With fewer than 2,600 speakers and no writing system, Darma is considered endangered. This is the most
comprehensive description of Darma to date.

Like the other Himalayan languages, the genetic classification of Darma has not been definitively determined. It is widely described as a western Himalayish language that is closely related to Byansi, Chaudangsi and Rangkas (the latter being extinct).
The data presented in this dissertation were obtained through three methodologies: direct elicitation, participant observation, and the discourse-centered
approach to data collection advocated by University of Texas linguistic anthropologist Joel Sherzer.

The discourse-centered methodology relies on naturally occurring speech, including conversation, stories, songs and public dialogues. The resulting data are
contextualized in a cultural framework, which is useful to linguists and anthropologists alike; and the majority of examples presented come from these texts.
