More information:

    "Although Yolmo [scp] and Kagate could be considered dialects of the same language, there are sufficient historical and political motivations for considering them as separate languages." (Lauren Gawne 2013)Kagate is an exonym and Syuba is the endonym for both the language and the community, and sometimes serves as a family name.
