This book is a grammar of Mangghuer, a Mongolic language spoken by
approximately 25,000 people in China's northwestern Qinghai
Province. Mangghuer is virtually unknown outside China, and no grammar
of Mangghuer has ever been published in any language. The book's
primary importance is thus as a systematic grammatical description of
a little-known language. The book also makes a significant
contribution to comparative Mongolic studies. In addition to the
synchronic description of Mangghuer, extensive comparison with other
Mongolic languages is included, demonstrating the genetic relationship
of Mangghuer within that family. In the course of describing Mangghuer
linguistic structures, the book also examines issues of interest to
linguistic typologists.
