This site presents a detailed description of the Sino-Tibetan language family. Sino-Tibetan (ST) is one of the largest language families in the world, with more first-language speakers than even Indo-European. ST includes both the Sinitic and the Tibeto-Burman languages.

ST is a highly differentiated language family of formidable scope, complexity, and time-depth. Tibeto-Burman (TB) comprises hundreds of languages besides Tibetan and Burmese, spread over a vast geographical area (China, India, the Himalayan region, peninsular SE Asia).

In addition, this site includes links to publications STEDT has published on Sino-Tibetan language families, bibliographies on this subject, and more. (Steven Weinberger 2004-07-02)
