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.

Manju was de­vel­oped on the ba­sis of Mon, 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’ Manju; its func­tion­al­ity has now been sub­sumed into mon, though the ob­so­lete Manju re­mains on the archive.
