How to use "Tibeto-burman" in context?


The tibeto-burman languages are a linguistic family, consisting of around twenty languages spoken in the north-west corner of South Asia.

They are largely spoken in the areas now forming the borders of modern Myanmar and Tibet, as well as in a small area in the east of Thailand. The languages have a long and complex history, and have been affected by many external factors, including contact with other languages and peoples.

The Tibeto-Burman languages are thought to have diverged from a common ancestor around 2500 BCE.
