The largest and most comprehensive verb dictionary for the Tibetan language.

This second edition is the only published verb lexicon for Classical Tibetan and an invaluable tool for all students and scholars of Tibetan language. With over 500 pages of the most frequently used Tibetan verbs along with their various verb forms, there is no comparable lexical resource available. This is a must-have for any translator, writer, or scholar who intends to maximize the quality of their work related to the Tibetan language.

This updated lexicon is a result of the author's painstaking and thorough research of data gathered over the course of fifteen years since the publication of the first edition. After thoroughly processing available digital text resources, both in Tibetan and in Sanskrit, this lexicon includes various verb forms, English equivalents, Sanskrit equivalents, and example sentences sampled from a wide range of literature. As a result of his linguistic and lexical talents, as well as his care to detail and accuracy, Paul Hackett has provided readers with a comprehensive dictionary of essential Tibetan verbs along with a thorough introduction outlining the language model for Tibetan verbs in terms of verb classes, forms, and functions.

Review:

"In this digital age, translators no longer have a stack of reference books on their desks. I still keep one within arm's reach: Paul Hackett's verb lexicon from 2003. This new and expanded version, more than twice the size of its predecessor, is an indispensable tool for all translators of Tibetan."
--Donald S. Lopez Jr., Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies, University of Michigan

"Paul Hackett's verb lexicon is a must-have for Tibetanists at all levels. The usage of verbs is so varied that this publication is invaluable."
--Jeffrey Hopkins, Professor Emeritus of Tibetan Buddhism, University of Virginia

"This significantly revised edition of Paul Hackett's A Tibetan Verb Lexicon is the most extensive, and the most important, bilingual resource currently available for understanding the complex universe of verb formation and usage in Classical Tibetan literature. It is sure to become an indispensable reference for translators and students alike."
--Andrew Quintman, Associate Professor of Religion, Wesleyan University
