Here we try to maintain a list of printed and online materials that you will find useful for learning Ladakhi.
- bolbosh.net/ladkh.php This short introductory article provides a wealth of information about Ladakhi dialects and even a handful of phrases that come with audio samples.
- Helena Norberg-Hodge's "Ladakhi-English English-Ladakhi Dictionary" (1991) can be searched on Google Books, but only three snippets are shown per search.
- reachladakh.com read news from Ladakh in English and find travel information in one place; it is also possible to subscribe to getting the news articles into your e-mail inbox (in our experience about one e-mail in a week or two)
There are also several vocabulary lists available online; while none of them provides the spelling in Tibetan script and the transcription conventions are not always clear, you may still find some of them useful:
