This is a reading course and reference grammar designed to help students of Tibetan master not only the multiplicity of Tibetan grammatical markers and particles, but also to develop the skills to cope with the semantic component of Tibetan grammar. The book is not intended to be a textbook of spoken Tibetan, therefore instruction focuses on the written form of the language. Two chapters are devoted to presenting the letters of the alphabet with a description of how they are pronounced.
