Abstract:

Due to the arrangement of its entries according to subject categories, the Auf kaiserlichen Befehl erstelltes Wörterbuch des Manjurischen in fünf Sprachen (Fünfsprachenspiegel) (The Dictionary of Manchurian in Five Languages compiled on the orders of the emperor, or Compendium of Five Languages ) is impossible to use as a reference book for unknown word forms. A structured alphabetical classification of the dictionary would only ever have been able to consider one of the five languages. In order to make all of the entries in all of the languages accessible, registers have been assembled for Manchurian, Tibetan (in Romanized Tibetan script, but not for the Manchurian transcription systems), Mongolian, Turki (again for the Romanized Arabic script, but without an indication of pronunciation in Manchurian script) and Chinese (categorized in this case according to graphemes). In contrast to earlier works, the registers for the first time make it possible to look up all verbal components also of complex compounds, independent of their positioning within the catalog entry. In addition, they also make it possible to look up all of the spelling variations contained in the Beijing reprint which is based on the Chonghuagong manuscript. In particular, this work also provides an attempt to provide a complete listing of all of the different versions of Chinese characters. (Harrassowitz Verlag 2014)
