Title: Folktales of China's Minhe Mangghuer
Edited By: Zhu Yongzhong
Wang Xianzheng
Keith William Slater
Kevin Stuart
Series Title: Languages of the World/Text Library 01
Description:

In the east-central portion of Northwest China's Qinghai Province dwell the
majority of China's Monguor (Tu) nationality, classified as one of China's
fifty-six official ethnic groups and numbering 190,000 (1990). The 37,900
Minhe Mangghuer, dwelling in Minhe Hui and Mangghuer (Tu) County, are the
second largest Monguor group.

Minhe Mangghuer (language) is of primarily Mongolic lexicon and
morphosyntax while, at the same time, exhibiting massive lexical and
phonological influences from Chinese. This collection of more than twenty
folktales are presented in the Mangghuer written system (based on a
modified pinyin system), English translation and extensive notes and
provides valuable linguistic materials on this endangered Monguor dialect
that exists nowhere else. Map, illustrations. Paperback.
