Stone with Mongolian Script

Stone with Mongolian Script 

The Mongolian vertical script was developed as an adaption of the Uyghur script to write the Mongolian language. It was introduced by the Uyghur scribe Tatar-Tonga, who had been captured by the Mongols during a war against the Naimans around 1204. There were no substantive changes to the Uyghur form for the first few centuries, so that, for example, initial yodh stood for both [dʒ] and [j], while medial tsadi stood for both [dʒ] and [tʃ], and there was no letter for in initial position. Mongolian sources often distinguish the early forms by using the term Uyghurjin script. Western sources tend to use this term as a synonym for all variations of the Mongolian script.
