Kami

Abstract : This article provides a sychronic and diachronic description of the phonological system of Kami, a Kham Tibetan dialect spoken in Mùlǐ Tibetan Autonomous County (Sìchuān Province). It focuses on characteristic features of Kami that set this variety apart from the best-recorded Kham dialects of Sìchuān (Bātáng and Dégé) and Yúnnán (Zhōngdiàn and Dōngwàng), with which Kami is grouped in one cluster in Qú and Jīn's (1981) classification. This article presents a wealth of first-hand Kami data, studies these in relation to corresponding phenomena in the neighboring Qiangic languages, and critically evaluates the current subgrouping scheme whereby Kami is grouped together with the dialects of Díqìng Prefecture.
