Indosphere is a subgrouping of Tibeto-Burman languages as defined by linguist James Matisoff, which includes languages that are typologically and morphologically a closeness to Indo-Aryan languages. It is commonly used in areal linguistics in contrast with Sinosphere, which refers to Tibeto-Burman languages that bear a closeness to the Chinese language.
