Language Contact and Variation: A Discourse-based Grammar of Monguor

This project analyzes annotated field data to prepare a grammar of Monguor, an unwritten endangered Mongolic language complex of northern Tibet. The end product will be a series of analytical modules published initially as a grammar for a linguistic audience. A representative sample of multi-tier time-linked grammatical annotations of 100 hours of high-quality audio and video recordings will be mined for basic morphological and syntactic information and queried for patterns in variation.
