STEDT is the Sino-Tibetan Etymological Dictionary and Thesaurus, a research project at the University of California at Berkeley. It is directed by Professor James Matisoff of Berkeley's Linguistics Department, and administered through the International and Area Studies division. Our goal is the publication of an etymological dictionary of Proto-Sino-Tibetan (PST), the ancestor language of the large Sino-Tibetan language family. This family includes Chinese, Tibetan, Burmese, and over 200 other languages spoken in South and Southeast Asia. The project was founded in 1987 and has enjoyed the support of the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.*
