About the project MONUMENTA ALTAICA|
This site is devoted to the languages of Altai family. Here you can get a free access to the great amount of texts in
ancient and modern altaic languages: Turkic, Mongolian, Manchu-tungus, Korean and Japanese. Also you can find here
papers on altaic linguistics, biographies of famous scholars in the field of Altaic studies, bibliographies of linguistic studies,
links to grammars and dictionaries and a lot of other information. I greatly appreciate and encourage any proposals of what may be
placed on this site.
