Tamang, Northwestern (tmk-tmk) = 6a (Vigorous). Language of recognized indigenous nationality: Tamang.

E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24 has three entries Northwestern Tamang [tmk], Southwestern Tamang [tsf] and Western Tamang [tdg], while E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24 retains two of them, removing Southwestern Tamang [tsf]. The Western Tamang entry, according to its description, subsumes both NW and SW and indicates that they are close enough to be mutually intelligible (as do all other descriptions of the Tamang dialect situation, e.g., András Höfer 1969 , Isao Honda 2007 , Martine Mazaudon 2003 , Timothy Lipp 2014 ), so the NW and SW Tamang entries are spurious. A similar conclusion is reached for the areas covered by the survey of Timothy Lipp 2014 . See also: Southwestern Tamang [tsf], Western Tamang [tdg].
