Mongolian – basic information
- The Mongolian language is a member of the Altaic language family. The name Mongolian is applied in two senses. In the narrow sense, it refers to the Khalkha dialect, which is widely spoken in Mongolia. In the broad sense, the name is associated with a wide range of dialects used in Mongolia and some parts of China and Russia.
- Modern Mongolian originated from Middle Mongol, a group of dialects spoken from the 13th to the 16th centuries in a large territory spreading from Manchuria to Eastern Europe that had been conquered by Genghis-Khan. That period saw the growth of literature (the literary language was markedly different from the dialects spoken by the Mongolian tribes). Modern Mongolian began to emerge in the 17th century.
- In Mongolia, the Mongolian language is written in a modified Cyrillic alphabet. In the past, other writing systems were used: Mongolian script which is based on the Old Uyghur alphabet and is written vertically (it is still used in Inner Mongolia), the Vagindra script and the Latin alphabet.
- In Mongolia, Mongolian is regulated by the State Language Council.

- Mongolian is an agglutinative language, in which morphemes are suffixed to word stems to form new words or word forms. Semantically, such a word corresponds to several words in most Indo-European languages.
- The standard word order in Mongolian is subject-object-verb, which means that the verb typically occurs at the end of a sentence.
- An interesting phenomenon in Mongolian is vocal harmony: suffixes added to the word root usually contain the same or similar vowels.
- A distinctive feature of Mongolian phonology is a high frequency rate of velar consonants. This creates the impression that the language has a large proportion of guttural sounds.
- Mongolian vocabulary includes a considerable number of words of foreign origin. In the past, Mongolian borrowed words from Old Turkic, Sanskrit, Persian and Arabic. In recent decades, it has adopted primarily Russian and English loanwords.
