During Tang China ca. Discovery of Sogdian texts[ edit ] Sogdian Christian text written in Estrangelo , discovered at Turpan , 9th—11th century. Robert Gauthiot , the first Buddhist Sogdian scholar and Paul Pelliot , who while exploring in Dunhuang , retrieved Sogdian material began investigating the Sogdian material that Pelliot had discovered.

These expeditions were controlled by the Ethnological Museum of Berlin. Most of the Sogdian religious works are from the 9th and 10th centuries. Sogdiana itself actually contained a much smaller collection of texts.

These texts were business related, belonging to a minor Sogdian king, Divashtich. These business texts dated back to the time of the Muslim conquest, about Like its close relatives, the Pahlavi scripts , written Sogdian contains many logograms or ideograms , which were Aramaic words written to represent native spoken ones. The Sogdian script is the direct ancestor of the Old Uyghur alphabet , itself the forerunner of the Traditional Mongolian alphabet.

As in other writing systems descended from the Proto-Sinaitic script , there are no special signs for vowels. However, unlike it, these consonant signs would also sometimes serve to express the short vowels which could also sometimes be left unexpressed, as they always are in the parent systems.
