The Limbu dictionary provided by G. Van Driem, published in Van Driem
1987. Here, as also in other Leiden databases, we preserve the original
system of transcription, different from the one usually employed on our site.
The differences are the following: vowel length is marked by :; the resonant
j is denoted as y; the affricates c, ʒ, č, ǯ - as ts, dz, c, j respectively;
the nasal ŋ - as N.
1. Entry - the headword in Limbu. If it has parallels in other languages,

2. Part of speech - grammatical information.
3. Derivation - derivational information.
