The Mongolian Language
Mongolian is an agglutinative language which normally ranks as a member of the Altaic language family, a family whose principal members are Turkish, Mongolian and Manchu (with Korean and Japanese listed as possible relations). The main features of the language are a system of vowel harmony, agglutination and the SOV word order so characteristic of this proposed language family. Mongolian does not distinguish gender, has no definite article, has only a very limited plural system and as in other Altaic languages, there is hardly any difference between nouns and adjectives.
The grammar section of Lingua Mongolia is primarily intended to be a quick on-line reference to the essentials of Mongolian grammar, and not a grammar tutorial, although there are plans to add these at a later date. If in the meantime you have any questions related to Mongolian grammar then please do not hesitate to contact me.
