Abstract:

Tibetan comprises a cluster of Tibeto-Burman languages spoken across Central
Asia. Its classical written form is a major Buddhist language. First published
in 1834, this dictionary of Tibetan, believed to be the very first, was
compiled by the Hungarian orientalist Kőrösi Csoma Sándor (c.1784–1842), who
styled himself Alexander Csoma de Kőrös in English, and was considered to be
the founder of the field of Tibetology. Containing over 20,000 entries with
English translations, the dictionary was created during the author's travels
in the East, during which he devoted himself to the study of the language.
Remaining of great interest to linguists today, the dictionary begins with a
useful guide to reading and understanding Tibetan words, with the value of
each syllable given in Roman script. The entries themselves are arranged
primarily under the language's thirty consonants, with irregular verb forms
listed where necessary.
