Huzhu Mongghul Texts: Chileb 1983 - 1996 Selections 

Limusishiden (Qinghai Medical College), Jugui and Kevin Stuart
(Qinghai Junior Teachers' College), (eds.) Li Jinxue (illustrations).

China's Monguor (Tu) nationality (2000 population = 220,000),
classified as one of China's fifty-six official ethnic groups, lives
in the east-central portion of Northwest China's Qinghai Province. The
57,000 Huzhu Mongghul (2000) are the largest Monguor group and greatly
influenced by Tibetan culture, especially in the religious
arena. Mongghul is a Mongolic language with typically verb-final
morphosyntactic behavior. Nominal modifiers precede their head noun,
auxiliaries follow the main verb, and the language has postpositions
and strictly suffixing, basically agglutinative morphology. The
Mongghul written system is based on a modified pinyin system.

An extensive selection of primarily folklore materials written by
Huzhu Mongghul has been published since 1983 in a mimeographed
journal. Few complete collections of this material currently
exist. Huzhu Mongghul Texts presents the great body of this material
in a single Mongghul-language collection with notes and a Table of
Contents in English. (Map, illustrations).
