Wait, what retroflex consonants? You mean /ʈʂ/?

No, I mean /ʈ/ and /ɖ/.

Tibetan doesn't have either of those.

Supposedly it does. Or am I confusing things? Or my sources?

Both textbooks I have say that /ʈ/ is indeed a thing (I keep confusing things with the romanizations used :P ). Even wiktionary lists it in the phonology section on Standard Tibetan. Granted it lists it as /ʈ ~ ʈʂ/.

EDIT: Manual of Standard Tibetan has a great section on the phonology of Standard Tibetan in Appendix 2, fyi. :)

So you were thinking of /ʈʂ/ after all! ;)

I've never actually heard it pronounced as just a retroflex stop btw. I'm pretty sure I have heard it pronounced as just an alveolar one, though.

I have to admit that I skipped ahead, and listened to the drills that have those retroflex consonants on them. It sounds like some type of /tr/ sound to me. I keep hearing an r sound towards the end.

I haven't gotten that far yet, so I guess we'll see again once we get there. :P

Could someone please translate this quote into Tibetan? If this is even the right forum for this?

"It’s easy to do nothing, it’s hard to forgive.".

Thank you in advance.

Please, can someone help me to identify this font?

I have been told by another forum user that it seems Tibetan script, but he is not certain and it seems Tibetan script is used to write several different languages. Please, can someone identify it? May be translate something? Thanks in advance.
