The History and Development of the Shan Scripts PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The History and Development of the Shan Scripts free pdf Like their Thai and Laotian cousins, the Shan people of Burma were Theravada Buddhists, with scripts, history, and centuries-old literature. But due to natural geographical barriers such as mountain ranges and rivers, various Shan groups developed different scripts. The earliest reference to Syam or Shan is found in a Pagan inscription from 1120 AD. From these early beginnings, Sai Kam Mong explores the possible origins of the Shan alphabet and delves into a careful analysis of the successive stages of the Shan script. In addition, the book examines the spelling and handling of Pali words within religious writings in each of these scripts and in the Yuan script. The final section considers the shortcomings of the early Shan scripts, presents the various modern scripts that have been proposed as alternatives, and concludes with a report outlining policy issues in teaching the Shan language over the past fifty years. Sai Kam Mong was a lecturer in history for many years at Mandalay and Yongon Universities in Myanmar.
