WLAN 202 : Nepal Bhasa IV

Building on Newar III, this course continues with increasingly more complex and nuanced sentence structures and vocabulary usage. There will be continued emphasis on practical language use and fluency in spoken Newar. At the same time, students will enhance their ability to decipher and translate 30 

Newar manuscripts, including those written in Old Newar. Students will work closely with the instructor to learn the art of editing and translating Newar manuscripts. As in Newar III, students have access to native Newar speakers with whom to practice conversational and reading skills.
