What do you think of when you think about Mongols? Horse archers, throat singing, Genghis Khan.. How about language? Mongolian of course, but how is that magical speech actually written down? If you walk around in Ulaanbaatar or any other Mongolian city and you’ll see the signs are written in Cyrillic as in neighbouring Russia. If you cross the border into Inner Mongolia in China, the people use a very different script, the traditional Mongolian script that is written vertically from top to bottom with an intricate system of strikes, dots and slashes that differs from the calligraphy of written Chinese as much as it does from the Latin or Cyrillic alphabet. But as of March 2020, the Mongolian government has decided to change its official script from Cyrillic, which it has used since 1941 and instead is exchanging it for the traditional Mongolian Script and in this video I want to find out why by looking at the history of Mongolian scripts and how Mongols chose in which script they would write their language.

Outstanding! Adopting traditional script rather than what's been forced on them by Marxists.
