Mangghuer Folktale Literature
Mangghuer, or Minhe Mangghuer, is spoken by about 25,000 people in Minhe Hui and Mangghuer (Tu) Autonomous County, Haidong Region, Qinghai Province, PR China, just north of the Yellow River that divides Qinghai and Gansu provinces. Mangghuer has only recently been described as a language in its own right (See Keith W. Slater. 2003. "Mangghuer" in Juha Janhunen, editor, The Mongolic Languages. Routledge: New York. pp. 307-324). Wang Xianzhen, writer; Zhu Yongzhong and Kevin Stuart, editors.
Published through the generosity of The Bridge Fund, the 23 folktales in this collection are written in Mangghuer that broadly follows Chinese pinyin. The selections were collected by Wang Xianzhen and Zhu Yongzhong in 1996 from Mangghuer villages in Minhe County. Wang Xianzhen rerecorded the folktales presented here in 2008 to improve sound quality.
