Mongolian languages - Altaic language group.   Heated Discussions

Started 23-Aug by Gonghis (GonghisKhan); 87 views.

Mongolian languages, one of three families within the Altaic language group.

The Mongolian languages are spoken in Mongolia and adjacent parts of east-central Asia.

Their subclassification is controversial, and no one scheme has won universal approval.

The central Mongolian languages are usually divided into a western group, consisting of the closely related Oirat (spoken in Mongolia and in the Xinjiang region of China) and Kalmyk (Russia), and an eastern group, consisting of the closely related Buryat (Russia) and Mongol (Mongolia and China) languages.

Outlying languages -- Moghol (spoken in Afghanistan), Daur (Inner Mongolia, China), Yellow Uighur (East Yogur, not to be confused with the Turkic Yellow Uighur [West Yugar]; Gansu province, China), and the southern group of Monguor (Tu), Dongxiang, and Bao’an (Bonan), which are spoken on the border between the provinces of Gansu and Qinghai -- exhibit archaic features.

All of the central, but none of the outlying, languages have written forms.

sunglasses Within the conversion of Buddhistic transcripts, Mongolian got a large number of Sanskrit, Tibetan, and Uighur terms, counting scientific religious words; also personal names and astronomical and Chinese calendar terms.

All of these languages are dialects, globally unused!
