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.
ManjuTeX was developed on the basis of MonTeX, 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’ ManjuTeX; its functionality has now been subsumed into monTeX, though the obsolete ManjuTeX remains on the archive.
