This volume takes up the sociopolitical shifts of the recent period as a call to investigate how rit...

AHP 47: A RIG RGAD PO THREATENS THE BUDDHA WITH HIS WALKING STICK

Sangs rgyas bkra shis སངས་རྒྱས་བཀྲ་ཤིས། (2017)
I heard that A rig rgad po was from a place that has the name he is known by - A rig rgad po – which is near Mtsho sngon po (Qinghai Lake). The people there are very traditional, very direct in their manner, and devoted Buddhists. They often go on pilgrimage to Lha sa. Stories about A rig rgar po describe their travels and encounters with Buddhas in Lha sa. I heard stories about A rig rgad po from my father's brother, Mkhyen rab rgya mtsho (b. ~1973), during the time I was a student at a scho...

Dissertation Notice: A Grammar of Wutun

Reviewed by Benjamin Brosig (2018)

An occasional problem when doing research on the languages of northern China is that while there are medium-sized structuralist, historical, and contemporary grammars for many local non-Sinitic varieties (e.g., Todaeva 1966, Chen and Cinggeltei 1986, and Fried 2010 for Bonan), the same does not seem to be equally true for their ...
