The Tibetan phonetic system was formed based on the prehistoric Sanskrit writing system. The regular and the cursive, which were the two major written scripts, gave rise to the wide use of the Tibetan language in almost all areas populated by the Tibetans. The Tibetan language got a further boost when a King from Southern Tibet got married in the Tang dynasty. Thereafter, the Tibetan culture saw a dramatic development from the 10th to the 16th century. The Tibetan spoken today is called ‘Colloquial Tibetan’ by some western intellectuals.
