Kevin Stuart
Series Title: Languages of the World/Text Library 03
Description:

China's Monguor (Tu) nationality, classified as one of China's fifty-six
official ethnic groups, lives in the east-central portion of Northwest
China's Qinghai Province. For the first time, wedding songs, funeral
lamentations, folktales, jokes and riddles, and other songs are presented
in the Mongghul written system (based on a modified pinyin system), English
translation and extensive notes. The 57,000 Huzhu Mongghul (1990) are the
largest Monguor group, speaking a language with many links to Mongol and
greatly influenced by Tibetan culture, especially in the religious arena.
