Chapter Summary

The language of the Shera Yögur group was discussed by Kotwicz on the basis of the materials of Mannerheim, Potanin and Malov. He pointed out that many Tibetan loan-words can be found in these glossaries, but naturally he has not made a systematic study of them. Since the Uighurs are living close to the little explored North-Eastern Archaic Tibetan (NEAT) dialects the Tibetan loan-words of their language are expected to yield a valuable contribution to comparative Tibetan studies, furthermore the author shows that the long coexistence of the two languages has had its effect on the Uighur language itself. The first two groups of initial clusters are extant in the NEAT dialects. The first group takes its origin from a preradical + radical, the second from a radical + postradical combination.

Keywords:NEAT dialects; Shera Yögur Language; Tibetan Loan-Words
