Appendix 1:
Glossary of Tibetan Spellings
This list includes primary authors and texts, selected secondary authors, and place
names, as well as special terms spelled phonetically in the chapters. Entries are alpha-
betized letter by letter, ignoring word and syllable breaks. For names usually pro-
nounced in the Amdo dialect, the phonetic rendering for the dialect is provided in
parentheses after the Tibetan Himalayan Digital Library (THDL) Simplified Phonetics
version. Names followed by an asterisk (*) retain the popular phonetic spelling used
in English publications by these scholars. For names typically appearing in Chinese,
the pinyin romanization is provided in parentheses after the THDL Simplified Pho-
netics version.
