This is the first Tibetan-English verb resource to be published in more than thirty years. It is a verb dictionary containing extensive lexical information. More than a mere translation of existing works, this lexicon was compiled employing statistical techniques and data, draws on sources spanning the 1,200 years of Tibet's classical literature and covering all major lineages.
The lexicon contains over 1,700 root verb forms and phrasal sub-entries, and incorporates a wide range of information not previously available in dictionary form. The individual entries contain English meanings, Sanskrit equivalents, complete sentences drawn from the corpus of Tibetan classical literature, and related sentence structure information. An extensive introduction to contemporary linguistic theory as applied to Tibetan verbs presents the theoretical underpinnings of the lexicon.
