Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which treats the question of the Tibetan loanwords of Monguor in the broader context of the Tibetan linguistic history. The idea of this particular approach was outlined by Professor Ligeti in his University lectures on Tibetan linguistic history in the year 1953/1934. His views concerning the basic problems of the history of the Tibetan dialects and his outline of the method and sources of this discipline directed his interest to the loanwords of the archaic Mongolian dialects in the Kan-su Ch'ing-hai area. The book also talks about the origin, historical and social background of the loanwords, and the consonants in radical, preradical, final and postfinal positions and their developments.

Keywords:consonants; loanwords; Mongolian dialects; Tibetan linguistic history; Tibeto-Mongolica
