Balti (Tibetan: སྦལ་ཏི།, Wylie: bal
ti skad; Nastaʿlīq
script: بلتی) is a Tibetic
language spoken in the Baltistan region
of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan,
Valley of Leh
district, and in the Kargil
district of Jammu
and Kashmir, India.
This book is based on the Khapalu and Skardu dialects of Balti, a member of the Tibeto-Burman family, spoken in Baltistan. The work is distinguished by its phonetic acuity, particularly important in the case of Balti, whose importance to the Tibeto-Burman and Sino-Tibetan comparatists is its close phonetic relationship to the Tibetan script. This book will undoubtedly become a standard work for the linguistics of the Tibetan language family in general.
