This book has been compiled to familiarize and acquaint English readers with the Tibetan words and phrases that are found in Tibetan characters or transliterations while reading Tibetan manuscripts. Also this work is intended to help the Tibetans and non-Tibetans who will study Tibetan grammar.

This book is divided into three parts. The first part introduces the basic structures of Tibetan language consisting of vowels, consonants, super scribed and subscribed letters and prefixes and suffixes.

The second part consists of a collection of articles on Tibetan literature published in the Tibet Journal Series. The Third part consists of translations of the three treatises on Tibetan Grammar.
