New evidence on Para-Mongolic numerals

  • Andreas Hölzl


Para-Mongolic is a technical term that designates languages that were related to the Mongolic languages, but which split off from this lineage before Proto-Mongolic times. One source of knowledge for Para-Mongolic comes from loanwords in surrounding languages, of which borrowed numerals in the Tungusic language Jurchen are a well-known example. The paper presents new evidence found in Tungusic languages that were previously almost unknown in the West and briefly sketches the place of those languages within the Tungusic family.
