WRITING SYSTEMS OF CHINESE, JAPANESE, VIETNAMESE AND MONGOLIAN
LOG OF UPDATES

The cjvlang site originally went up in mid-July 2000. The project on CJV writing systems was added in about July 2001, consisting of three main pages, one devoted to each of the three languages. The initial version had considerable problems of content, particularly the section on Chinese, which was heavily flawed. I have made sporadic attempts to rewrite the content, but since it takes a lot of energy to do so, such attempts usually come in bursts, after long periods of gestation. The Chinese script section is still heavily flawed and will need further fixing.

The 'pre-history' of the project is as follows:

The section on hiragana and katakana was added in the late summer/autumn of 2002.

Japanese signs were added in the late summer of 2003, after a trip to Japan.

The page of photos showing Vietnamese writing of foreign authors' names was added in December 2003, after a trip to Vietnam.

Notes on transliteration is one of the oldest pages of cjvlang that belonged to no particular section. It was transferred to Writing Systems in December 2003.

The writing of foreign names in CJV originally belonged to Harry Potter and was also transferred here in December 2003.

These logs begin at 21 December 2003 (starting from the bottom).

The project has undergone extensive changes.

Although I have gone public with this revised version, more rewrites are forthcoming. Navigation issues remain to be resolved.
