Linguistic Survey of Nepal

In spite of the surveys that have already been conducted in Nepal, a clear understanding of the diversity of language communities still persists. Given the lack of understanding, the primary goal of this Survey is to give clarity to the sociolinguistic situation of the language communities of Nepal. In support of this goal, we seek to develop an archive which houses a database of information about the languages of Nepal.
