Drawing from Tangut philological sources and from the author's personal fieldwork on the closely related Rgyalrong languages, this book is the first application of the comparative method to the study of Tangut. It contains a detailed account of Tangut historical phonology within the proposed Macro-Rgyalrongic group, and over twenty new sound laws are proposed. It also discusses the issue of language classification and the position of Tangut in the Sino-Tibetan family.

Basé sur la philologie tangoute et sur les études de terrain de l'auteur sur les langues rgyalrongs, qui y sont prochement apparentées, ce livre est la première application de la méthode comparative à l'étude du tangoute. Il contient une analyse détaillée de la phonologie historique du tangoute au sein du groupe macro-rgyalronguique proposé par l'auteur. Plus de vingt nouvelles lois phonétiques sont exposées pour la première fois. Il discute aussi de la question de la classification des langues et de la position du tangoute au sein de la famille sino-tibétaine.
