Summary and Info
Tashi. A Basic Grammar of modern spoken TibetanLabrary of Tibetan Works and Archives, 2005. — 195 с. — A practical handbook. — 81-85102-74-0A Basic Grammar of Modern Spoken Tibetan is written for those non-Tibetan who have a keen interest in learning the proper rules of spoken Tibetan grammar. This book is based on my twelve years of experience in teaching Tibetan language at the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, Dharamsala and one year teaching and studying in the U.S.A. During these years I have collected several notes which express the common grammatical problems of Tibetan language students. In this book I have tried to present the grammar rules as clearly as possiblewith a number of simple examples, so that it may be used by anyone who has no previous knowledge of spoken Tibetan. The English translations follow the Tibetan as closely as possible in order to help students understand both its meaning and form. (from the preface by the author).
