Title: Mongolic Phonology and the Qinghai-Gansu Languages
Written By: Hans Nugteren
Series Title: LOT dissertation series
Description:

The peripheral Mongolic languages of the Qinghai-Gansu area in China
comprise Eastern Yugur (Shira Yugur) and the Shirongol languages. The
latter can be subdivided in a Monguor branch, consisting of Mongghul and
Mangghuer, and a Baoanic branch, consisting of Baoan, Kangjia, and
Dongxiang (Santa).

The internal taxonomy of the Qinghai-Gansu languages will be discussed in a
separate section. The Qinghai-Gansu languages are increasingly well-
described. They have also been the subject of studies in language contact,
mostly in the context of the Amdo or Qinghai-Gansu Sprachbund. This study
will approach the phonology of Qinghai-Gansu Mongolic from a comparative
historical viewpoint. It provides an overview of the phonological developments
of the Qinghai-Gansu languages, comparing them to the reconstructed
ancestral language. At the same time it will investigate the archaic features
that can be found in these languages, in order to improve the reconstructions
of individual Mongolic lexemes. The book ends with a comparative
supplement of about 1350 reconstructed Common Mongolic items,
accompanied by the modern forms they are based on and, where necessary,
arguments for the chosen reconstruction.
