Pam Arlund and Neikramon Ibrukhim. 2013. A Chinese Tajik Reader: An Introduction to Sarikoy (Sarikol) Tajik

*         The first complete English book about Sarikoy Tajik (ISO 639-3: srh), this is the single largest repository of knowledge in existence about the language's grammar, phonetics, and phonology - a rich addition to scholarly knowledge.

*         For the first time, a western linguist and a native speaker have worked together to examine Sarikoy Tajik scientifically.

*         Easy and enjoyable for language learners, this book uses fun illustrations and everyday language.

*         Anyone wanting to learn Sarikoy Tajik will find it useful, as will an Tajik who wishes to know more about their language or any of the other three languages in the book (English, Mandarin, and Uyghur).

*         Rough sound files to accompany the book can be downloaded at: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4RVSMNriYnnM05oeXRKYXBUbVE&usp=sharing

*         The book contains 65 lessons. New word lists are in four languages (Sarikoy, English, Mandarin, Uyghur), but texts are only in three languages at this time (no Mandarin).

*         All grammar explanations are in English and are written in everyday language as much as possible.

*         The goal of the text is to enable the used to speak Sarikoy.

*         No linguistic background is necessary or assumed. All Sarikoy is written in IPA and rough unedited sound files are available
