Tibetan Language Books
Tibetan is Tibetic (or Bodic) language belonging to the Tibeto-Burman group of the Sino-Tibetan language family; it is spoken in Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, and in parts of northern India (including Sikkim). The language is usually divided by scholars into four dialect groups: Central, Southern, Northern (in northern Tibet), and Western (in western Tibet). The widely used dialect of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, belongs to the Central group, while the Southern group is found primarily in Sikkim, Bhutan, and Nepal. The Western dialects are more conservative in their sound systems, having best preserved the initial consonant clusters and the final stops (sounds formed with complete closure in the vocal tract) of Old Tibetan and having less development of tones than the other dialects.(source: "http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/594982/Tibetan-language)
Urdu Language Books from India
Urdu ( اردو ) is also an Indo-Aryan language, which is one of the eighteen national languages of the Union of India and the national language of Pakistan. Although influenced by Arabic and Persina, it is akin to Hindi, which originated and developed in the Indian subcontinent. Both the languages share the same Indic base. At the phonological and grammatical levels they are very similar in that they appear to be one language, but at the lexical level they have borrowed extensively from different sources (Urdu from Arabic and Persian, and Hindi from Sanskrit) that they are perceived to be independent languages. Their distinction is most marked at the orthographical level: Hindi uses Devanagri, and Urdu uses the Perso-Arabic script, indigenously modified to suit its requirements.
