Nepali has also been adopted by peoples of the Himalayan region who belong to different linguistic groups, and is now understood throughout the whole of Nepal, the Darjeeling region of West Bengal, Sikkim, Bhutan and parts of Tibet, where it has functioned as a language of trade and commerce for well over two centuries. The aim of this course, which covers the whole grammar and all the constructions of modern Nepali, is to present a full description of both the spoken and written forms of modern standard Nepali, and to enable the student to understand, speak and read most types of Nepali he or she is likely to encounter. The earlier lessons concentrate mainly on the spoken style, and the conversation passages whilst the later lessons concern religious, political and literary topics. Nepal is a land which already provides great enjoyment to the increasing number of visitors from the west. A knowledge of the language leads to a deeper understanding of the culture of its people, and the object of A Course in Nepali is to provide the means of learning it without much difficulty. Earlier editions of this course have been the standard book for students at the School of Oriental and African Studies, and it is without question the established market leader.
This book is an ideal beginning for those who are trekking, travelling, working or volunteering in Nepal, whose priority is to speak and understand everyday Nepali. To speak perfect Nepali, it is essential to learn the Nepali script and come to terms with the pronunciation. Mastery of the content of this book will enable you to communicate practically and effectively on a wide range of everyday subjects. This book has been written in what the author has termed ‘Neplish’ - essentially Nepali words written phonetically in English. ‘Practical Nepali’ has been arranged into 6 sections: an introductory part which covers ‘contents’, ‘acknowledgements’, ‘introduction’, ‘tips on getting started’, ‘pronunciation’ and ‘word order’ and a second part that covers ‘vocabulary’ and minor grammar’. Examples of phrases are included within each of the 12 vocabulary sections, all of which cover a particular topic. The third part includes 34 aspects of ‘major’ or ‘universal grammar’ which makes deciphering and learning the language much easier. The fourth part deals with verbs, verb tenses and their conjugations and the fifth part covers ‘special usage of verbs’ - some verbs have multiple meanings and can mean different things when combined with other words. Studying this book will not only enable you to communicate adequately on a wide range of everyday subjects, but your purchase will also benefit wonderful work being done in Nepal. Part of the author’s motivation in turning her Nepali language lessons into a published form was to provide an income for three charities she supports and to supplement the income of two wonderfully patient men – Saila and Mohan – who helped Virginia over the course of many visits, learn the language. 50% of the proceeds of this book are being donated – 10% each to three charities doing wonderful work in Nepal (‘The Australian Himalayan Foundation’, ‘Classrooms in the Clouds’ and ‘Langtang Valley Health (Australia)’ and 10% each to Saila and Mohan in appreciation of everything they taught me. Once this e-book is in circulation the author intends to start work on an accompanying dictionary and one day hopes to read and write Nepali...that may be another book!

This is a lucid account of the highlights in the historical development of the calculus from ancient to modern times - from the beginnings of geometry in antiquity to the nonstandard analysis of the twentieth century. It emphasizes the genesis and evolution of both fundamental concepts and computational techniques. The intended audience includes not only students of the history of mathematics, but also the wider mathematical community, specifically those who study, teach and use calculus. Among the distinctive features of this exposition are historically motivated exercises and carefully chosen illustrative examples. Numerous sections of the book are suitable for use in courses in introductory and advanced calculus as well as the general history of mathematics.
Summary: "Since the rise of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, the traditional Islamic schools known as the madrasa have frequently been portrayed as hotbeds of terrorism. For much longer, the madrasa has been considered by some as a backward and petrified impediment to social progress. However, for an important segment of the poor Muslim populations of Asia, madrasas constitute the only accessible form of education. This volume presents an overview of the madrasas in countries such as China, Indonesia, Malayisia, India and Pakistan."--Publisher description.
Languages are not only tools of communication, they also reflect a view of the world. Languages are vehicles of value systems and cultural expressions and are an essential component of the living heritage of humanity. Yet, many of them are in danger of disappearing. UNESCO's Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger tries to raise awareness on language endangerment. This third edition has been completely revised and expanded to include new series of maps and new points of view.
