Earliest pocket dictionaries
Friday, July 18, 2008


By accident we ended up in the multilingual dictionary museum of the Forbidden City. It was out of the way and away from the crowds surrounded by a cool garden. A welcome break from the heat and crowds around the main buildings.
But we had a wonderful time inspecting the ancient Chinese multilingual dictionaries in Tibetian, Mongolian and other scripts. The pocket sized ones were the first keitai dictionaries.
How apt!
