Students English=Tibetan Colloquial Dictionary
Author: Bell, C.A.
The Dictionary is a practical handbook that attempts to provide a quick yet thorough understanding of the colloquial Tibetan language. A special feature of the Dictionary containing more than eleven thousand words including honorific words, is that the Tibetan words are presented in romanised form for pronunciation by those who do not understand Tibetan. An introductory chapter details the structure and system of pronunciation of Tibetan letters and words. It combines an easy approach with incorporation of features like two or more Tibetan words against the same English equivalent and the literary form in the Tibetan character, with the colloquial form in the romanised Tibetan, when the colloquial and Tibetan forms differ from each other to some extent. All this is to aid in a deeper knowledge of the subject. A special feature of this edition is that all the corrections listed in the errata of the second edition have been carried out in the main text. The volume will be particularly useful to scholars of Tibetan language and English-speaking students learning the language.
