This book is the first book in French about dzongkha, the national language of Bhutan, and it took almost 10 years to come to light !.
Â It is published by the French publisher l'Harmattan in a series dedicated to the languages of the world .
The main author is the great linguist George /Georges van Driem and the book is an updated translation in French of his book published with Karma Tshering:
The Grammar of Dzongkha (rDzong kha'i brDa sprod pa'i gZhung), Dzongkha Development Commission:
Thimphu, 1992, pp. 388.
My contribution has been modest: it has been to coordinate the publication and write the chapters of introduction.
It has been a long and tedious journey but it is rewarding as we are happy to contribute to the awareness of the Dzongkha language amongst a French-speaking audience.
Very best regards,
PS I have not yet seen the published book myself.
