Abstract:

Mongolian is the principal language spoken by some five million ethnic Mongolsliving in Outer and Inner Mongolia, as well as in adjacent parts of Russia andChina. The spoken language is divided into a number of mutually intelligibledialects, while for writing two separate written languages are used: CyrillicKhalkha in Outer Mongolia (the Republic of Mongolia) and Written Mongol inInner Mongolia (P. R. China). In this grammatical description, the focus is onthe standard varieties of the spoken language, as used in broadcasting,education, and everyday casual speech. The dialectology of the language, andits background as a member of the Mongolic language family, are also dicussed.Mongolian is an agglutinating language with a well-developed suffixalmorphology. In the areal framework, the language is a typical member of thetrans-Eurasian Ural-Altaic complex with features such as vowel harmony, verb-final sentence structure, and complex chains of non-finite verbal phrases.
