Tibeto-Burman language is a huge language, involving between 250 to 300 dialects, which stretches out over a tremendous geological area of Asia and displays a momentous typological variety.

Most researchers consider that it is hereditarily connected with Chinese incorporating with it a Sino-Tibetan phylum. The hereditary language, Proto-Sino-Tibetan, would have been addressed the east of the Tibetan Level, maybe in the Yellow Waterway valley, no less than quite a while back (a period profundity equivalent to that of Proto-Indo-European).

From that point, movements toward the west and south conveyed what might turn into the Bodish or Tibetan dialects to Tibet, while an alternate rush of relocations from the country, in a southwesterly heading, following the stream valleys down into Myanmar, Nepal, and India created different parts of the family.

Some Tibeto-Burman branches have been impacted lexically, phonologically and morphologically by Chinese, others by Indo-Aryan, others like Tibetan by both.

Tibeto-Burman dialects are spoken in Tibet, western China (territories of Yunan, Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan, and western Hunan), in the east and north of South Asia, and in Southeast Asia.

In the Indian subcontinent they are found in Baltistan (an area of North Pakistan colonized by the Tibetans in the seventh 100 years), Ladakh (a locale of northwest India associated socially to Tibet), Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and in the northeastern provinces of India (Nagaland, Mizoran, Sikkim, Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya).

In Southeast Asia they prevail in Myanmar and are additionally spoken in pockets in Laos, Thailand, and northwestern Vietnam.
