THE LANGUAGES

The geographic scope of the project covers Northeast Asia (Japan, China, South Korea and North Korea), Southeast Asia (especially Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Burma), South Asia (India), Australia and some non-state actors in the Karen, Shan and Islamic communities in Southeast Asia. In terms of threat perceptions, security dialogues, capability interaction and institutional frameworks, these countries and communities form an appropriate region for analysis.

The languages examined are:

Burmese

Chinese

English (Australian)

English (Indian)

Indonesian

Japanese

Karen

Korean (North)

Korean (South)

Malaysian

Shan

Thai

Lexicon entries can be accessed via the right-hand sidebar by language or thematic/semantic role. This project also relies on a range of different fonts used for Asian languages, as such muddled text may appear on your screen in place of some of the fonts. Other Asian scripts have been rendered as GIFF images in order to be displayed correctly on computer systems.
