Simple Grammar - Learn to read backwards

This is an attempt to start with very simple Tibetan grammar postings.

The first cryptical posting is: in many cases read the sentence from right to left. It has to do with so call particles such as la, nas, gyi, and so on, and they point at something from the right side to the left, so when you read sentences backwards, it's a more natural flow.

More later, but it's a good rule to know about when translating sentences.
