Dear Oranskaiajyu,

Do you also speak Nepali or Tibeti [Tibetan] ? Your using 'jyu' below suggests it. Nepal's current development in MTs has only been possible with International concerns, concerns from the MT Communities itself and the positive attitude of the government also.

Many thanks to all of them.

nako im kula ale ? [Where is your home ?]  This is a sentence from Magar language. lagta hai aapko Hindi bhi aata hai [ You understand Hindi too, don't you ?].

There are a number of monolingual communities in Nepal who will benefit from such development in the country.

Namaste,

BKR

As published in Kantipur Daily [Nepal's largest vernacular daily of April 15, 2005], the proposed 10 MTs are Tibeti, Awadhi, Bhojpuri, Rai, Limbu, Gurung, Magar, Thakali, Tharu and Tamang. The government has designated them 'local languges' instead of 'Mother Tongues' but the Constitution says them  'mother tongues'. These languages are proposed for intermediate level of education. Additionally, Urdu is also taught in intermediate level. Maithili, Nepali, Newari, Sanskrit and Hindi are taught
 upto Masters' level in Tribhuvan University. This is a good start, I think. I sincerely thank the Government of Nepal for its concern about mother tongue preservation. Sincerely yours, BKR "Oranskaia <tatiana.oranskaia at UNI-HAMBURG.DE> wrote: VYAKARAN: South Asian Languages and Linguistics Net Editors: Tej K.

i would be most grateful if you could mail me just the names of the languages in Latin script. I see only a black square on the monitor.

It reads the government of Nepal has proposed  10 more different mother tongue courses for college level education. Hope the news item will come in English version also
