Description
 
Introduction to Standard Tibetan (spoken and written) followed by an appendix on classical literary Tibetan

The Manual of Standard Tibetan presents the everyday speech of Lhasa as it is currently used in Tibet as well as amongst the Tibetan diaspora. It aims not only to place the language in its natural context, but also to highlight along the way key aspects of Tibetan civilization and Vajrayana Buddhism.

The Manual, which consists of forty-one lessons, is illustrated with many drawings and photographs, and also includes two previously unpublished maps. Two CDs provide an essential oral complement to the Manual. A detailed introduction presents a linguistic overview of spoken and written Tibetan, and a lengthy appendix outlines the differences between literary and spoken Tibetan.

Manual of Standard Tibetan, Nicolas Tournadre and Sangda Dorje, Snow Lion Publications, Book 562 pp., 2 CDs, $80.00.
