Wikipedia: Lepcha language, or Róng language (Lepcha: ᰛᰩᰵ་ᰛᰧᰶᰵ; Róng ríng), is a Himalayish language spoken by the Lepcha people in Sikkim and parts of West Bengal, Nepal and Bhutan.
Lepcha is spoken by minorities in the Indian states of Sikkim and West Bengal, as well as parts of Nepal and Bhutan. Where it is spoken, it is considered to be an aboriginal language, pre-dating the arrival of the Tibetan languages (Sikkimese, Dzongkha, and others) and more recent Nepali language. Lepcha speakers comprise four distinct communities: the Renjóngmú of Sikkim; the Támsángmú of Kalimpong, Kurseong, and Mirik; the ʔilámmú of Ilam District, Nepal; and the Promú of southwestern Bhutan. Lepcha-speaking groups in India are larger than those in Nepal and Bhutan.
The Indian census reported 50,000 Lepcha speakers, however the actual number of native Lepcha speakers in India may be closer to 30,000.
Classification Lepcha is difficult to classify, but George van Driem (2001) suggests that it may be closest to the Mahakiranti languages, a subfamily of the Himalayish languages.
Lepcha is internally diverse, showing lexical influences from different majority language groups across the four main Lepcha communities. According to Plaisier (2007), these Nepali and Sikkimese Tibetan influences do not amount to a dialectical difference.
Roger Blench suggests that Lepcha may have an Austroasiatic substratum, which originated from a now-extinct branch of Austroasiatic that he calls 'Rongic'.
Features Lepcha is a non-tonal Sino-Tibetan language, although it does have phonemic stress or pitch that may be marked in the Lepcha script.:37 Much of its lexicon is composed of monosyllabic elements.
Notably, words that are commonly considered obscene or taboo in other languages are not treated as such by native speakers.
