Vietnamese matters

Tho materials

These materials feature the Tho language of Northeast Vietnam. They were gathered 50 years ago under the auspices of the Summer Institute of Linguistics and the Wycliffe Bible Translators, so the materials are the intellectual property of these organisations.

An apology must be made for any errors found in this material. Text typed on paper which has had 50 years to age is sometimes hard to decipher.

The files below are in pdf format. If you have Acrobat Reader, then when you click on one of the names, the reader will display the file. You may then use the menu items either to print the file or to save it by downloading it onto your computer. Alternatively, if you right-click on a name you can use 'Save Target As' in order to download the file or 'Print Target' to print it.
