This lecture will discuss Tibetan Buddhist philosophy of language, by considering six points, namely: (1) the ontology of language; (2) a typology of language; (3) a technology (or mechanism) of language; (4) language in the context of Buddhist ontology; (5) language in the context of Buddhist axiology (i.e. theory of values); and (6) language in the context of Buddhist logic and epistemology. This will be done by resorting to random writings of Tibetan Buddhist scholars.

This talk will focus on Tibet's non-Tibetan minority languages. In addition to providing basic information about these languages, the talk examines the complex sociolinguistic context faced by their speakers as enclaves within larger Tibetan communities, inside the Chinese state, in an interconnected and globalized world. These languages are subject to several unexpected sociolinguistic trends. Some languages are thriving, while others are likely to disappear in the near future.
