Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Institute of Language and Literature of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences (MAS), Center for Mongolian Studies of the Mongolian State University of Education and the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies are co-hosting an international symposium under the theme “Consolidating terminologies of Mongolian-speaking nations and creating a joint database”. Linguistics and scholars from Mongolia, Japan, China and Russia are taking part to talk about ways to integrate and consolidate Mongolian language and writing used by Mongolian-speaking people.  

Secretary of the Institute of Language and Literature of the MAS Ts.Batdorj said “Despite the fact that Mongolian language is widely used in Inner Mongolia, China and Buryat Republic, Russia, when it comes to even narrower field specializations of science, Mongolian language is used unevenly.  In this regard, scholars from four countries are discussing how to introduce a system for Mongolian-speaking people to use particular phrases and terminologies in Mongolian with single meaning”.  In an effort to settle this issue, a joint webpage of Mongolian language will be developed. The scholars at the two-day symposium emphasized that these efforts will smooth the way for international linguists of Mongolian language and Mongolian studies scholars to connect and communicate with each other. 

On the first day of the event, Kurebito Tokusu, Professor of the Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia and Africa delivered a speech on “Significance of eliminating dissimilarities of scientific terminology of Mongolian language”, Dr. Ts.Unurbayan, Dean of Mongolian Studies Center on “Compared observance on Mongolian scientific terminology” and Dr. G.A. Dyrkheeva from the Institute for Mongolian, Buddhist and Tibetan Studies of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences on “Usage of terminologies of modern Mongolian language”. Tomorrow, the second day of the conference will be dedicated to speeches on Mongolian terminologies of various fields such as education, medicine, agriculture and natural sciences.
