This book features the "Great Living Tree" Tibetan grammars, which are the standard beginner’s texts used for studying Tibetan grammar in Tibetan schools and monasteries in general. Tibetan grammar has often been taught by westerners in a way that does not reflect how Tibetans understand their own grammar.  This and our other books on grammar have the special feature that, for the first time, they present native Tibetan grammar works in English, works that show how Tibetans understand their own grammar.  Therefore, this book is the recommended textbook for anyone beginning a study of Tibetan grammar. The author of the book has included his own commentary, written easy-to-understand English, to clarify the meaning of the two Tibetan grammars. The extensive introduction, translations, ample footnotes, glossary, and book design by Tony Duff.
