Unit 7: Syntactic Particles, Nominative-Locative Verbs, Cases Indicating Means and Reasons

A sign outside a cave in Sikkim where Padmasambhava is said to have stayed.

In this unit, you will learn more about syntactic particles, about nominative-locative verbs, and about which case particles may indicate the reason for something or the means by which something is done. You'll also learn a bit more about pronouns. 

This unit follows the presentation of these topics found in Chapter 15 of Translating Buddhism from Tibetan. Study that chapter carefully. Then, watch the lecture presentation below, memorize the chapter's vocabulary using Quizlet, practice the unit's exercises below, and use the reading sample below to work on your pronounciation.

When you have completed each part, go to the My Progress page and let the instructor know you have completed your work; you can also provide feedback to the instructor on how your work is going.
