manjutex – Manju language support
Manju is a
language of North East Asia, belonging to the Tungusic branch of
the Altaic languages. Though it is virtually not spoken anymore,
it survives in written form as Manju was the native language of
the rulers of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911) in China. Large
quantities of documents of the Imperial Archives survive, as
well as some of the finest dictionaries ever compiled in Asia,
like the Pentaglot, a dictionary comprising Manju, Tibetan,
Mongolian, Uighur and Chinese.
X was developed on the basis
, and provides all necessary
characters for writing standard Manju as well as transliterated
Tibetan texts, for which purpose a number of additional
characters were created.
This catalogue entry describes the ‘original’
X; its functionality has now been subsumed into
, though the obsolete ManjuTe
remains on the archive.
