A thesis submitted In partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Australian National University, 1973.
Gurung is a language spoken in the central west of Nepal. According to the report of the
1961 Census of Nepal, 157,778 persons claimed Gurung as their mother tongue, of whom most (146,600) lived in the western hills, especially in the districts of Lamjung, Syangja, Kaski, Gorkha, Tanahun, and Dhading.
Outside Nepal Gurung communities exist in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India, and at Gurkha Brigade posts of the Indian Army throughout India.
However these communities do not in general use the Gurung language, replacing it with Nepali
and major Indian languages. I have observed that Gurung children returning to Nepal from military posts can converse with their village relatives only in Nepali while the latter converse among themselves in Gurung. This fact may help to explain the discrepancy between the 1951 Census
of India, reporting 25,556 speakers of Gurung CGopalaswami 1954:12), and the 1961 Census of India, which enumerated. 'Gurung' is the most common name for the language in
the literature.
