A college textbook for engineering majors. The authors argue that an understanding of geometry is central and that computers should be invoked only when the principles are understood. There being no systematic descriptive grammar of the language of Nepal, this work fills a gap by providing a description of the sound system, writing system, morphology, and syntax of Nepali. The description is more practical than theoretical and can be the basis of course materials. A short story is thoroughly analyzed. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
