Dear friends,

This newsletter announces the latest edition of the Illuminator Dictionary.  You will help us greatly if you forward this e-mail to anyone you know doing Tibetan studies (thanks!).

The Illuminator Dictionary, widely regarded as the world’s foremost Tibetan-English dictionary, is an ongoing project.  Each year we make a new edition of the dictionary that contains all the new entries and other improvements made during our translation work of the previous year.  This year’s new 2016 edition contains hundreds of additions and significant improvements made during 2015.  The Reader software has been improved in each case, too.
