A tartalomból:

The present volume is the fi rst part of a series aimed to introduce the activity of the Hungarian-Mongolian Expedition researching dialects and traditional culture over the past two decades among Mongolian speaking ethnic groups. The starting volume celebrates the beginning of the Expedition twenty years earlier and is connected to the language and dialect researches based on the fi eldwork among the West Mongolian Oirads since 1991. Researching Oirad materials is particularly important among Mongolic languages. The reason is that once living in a compact unity, the ethnic group has widely scattered but they still preserve their specific language and culture even surrounded by a different majority (Khalkha Mongolian, Chinese, Tibetan and Russian). Living separated from each other since the 17th century and some of their groups changing territory several times, the Oirads have preserved archaisms in their dialects that could contribute to the study of the development and alteration of other Mongolic languages. The examination of other modifi cations in majority environments, of the strategies of maintaining their language and culture might provide grounds for drawing linguistic and cultural inferences of general validity. An international community of researchers demonstrates their achievement in various disciplines of Oirad and Kalmyk linguistic studies in the present volume.
