Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce that SOAS has digitized the earliest
grammar of Dzongka, a rare bibliographic item that we are lucky to

We have also digitized an important study in Burmese historical
lexicography by the well known scholar Po Lat.

If you are aware of other resources on Tibeto-Burman languages that
are not copyrighted (note that Burma is not signatory to international
copyright treaties) and in the SOAS library, please let me know and I
will recommend them for digitization.
