Case compounding has received a certain amount of attention in the literature in recent years, in particular the phenomenon known as Suffixaufnahme and the various sorts of case compounding in Australian languages, some of which manifest Suffixaufnahme and other types of case compounding. There has been relatively less attention paid to the phenomenon outside of these two areas of research, and this paper is an attempt to rectify the situation somewhat by presenting data from a large family of languages, the Bodic languages, spoken in the areas straddling the spine of the Himalayas. The Bodic languages are a large and ramified branch of the Tibeto-Burman languages.
