khams bco brgyad - Eighteen Elements

The next lists how many elements are there, and after this all the elements are listed.

khams is element, rnams is the plural ending, so khams rnams is elements.

ni is an emphatic particle, so it's emphasizing the right side with the left.

bco brgyad is eighteen. de is another particle, the semi-final particle, this will tie together this statement with the listing of the eighteen elements.

So that's what we will do next, as the individual elements will introduce a lot of practical nouns that is good to learn in Tibetan!
