The New Norman
The publication of Jerry Norman’s A Comprehensive Manchu-English Dictionary — the long-awaited revision of his 1978 Manchu-English Lexicon — is at hand. Harvard Asia Center Publications announces that this title will be available by the end of January 2013. Norman, who sadly passed away in July 2012, had been working for many years on this project. The new Dictionary contains about one-third more entries than the Lexicon, and has extensive notes on pronunciation not found in the latter.
