Chapter Summary

The investigation of the archaic Mongolian dialects does play an important role from the point of view of the comparative Mongolian studies and of the Mongolian linguistic history alike. The archaic dialects can be divided into three main groups: the Moghol of Afghanistan, the Dahur and the dialects of the Kansu-Chinghai region in the Chinese People's Republic. From the point of view of the initial consonant clusters the author can divide the Tibetan loan-words of Monguor into three groups. These groups represent three stages of the history of the Old Tibetan prefixes in the Eastern Tibetan dialects. He sees how this Tibetan influence is reflected in an archaic Monguor feature, in the several representations of the Common Mongolian initial*p-, Middle Mongolian h-.

Keywords:archaic Mongolian dialects; Monguor; Old Tibetan prefixes; Phonology
