    1985.04I am describing the grammars of several languages spoken in Central and East Asia, including Manchu, Sive, Uyghur, Mongolian, Japanese, Korean etc. Manchu is a language spoken by the Manchus who established the Qing dynasty in China. Although the language is almost extinct, there is a language called Sive which is spoken in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China by 20,000 peoples. I am doing research into both of Written and Spoken Manchu. The study of Spoken Manchu will make a large contribution to that of Written Manchu, and vice versa..
