Eastern Yugur (Shira Yugur) and the Shirongol languages. The latter should be subdivided in a Monguor department, which includes Mongghul and Mangghuer, and a Baoanic department, together with Baoan, Kangjia, and Dongxiang (Santa).
The inner taxonomy of the Qinghai-Gansu languages may be mentioned in a separate section.
The Qinghai-Gansu languages are more and more well-described. They
have additionally been the topic of experiences in language touch, normally within the context
of the Amdo or Qinghai-Gansu Sprachbund.
This research will technique the phonology of Qinghai-Gansu Mongolic
from a comparative historic perspective. It presents an outline of the phonological advancements of the Qinghai-Gansu languages, evaluating them to the reconstructed ancestral language. while it's going to examine the
archaic gains that may be present in those languages, on the way to enhance the
reconstructions of person Mongolic lexemes.

Nevertheless, construal transformations play an important role in some clearly "linguistic" phenomena. g. g. "through"). 3. Tracing Polysemy to Internal-Viewpoint Transformations 3. 1. Polysemy of through-phrases As an illustration of the complex interaction between construal transformations and the objective scene, consider the various legitimate ways to interpret the event de­ scribed in sentence (1). (1) Lucy ran through the house. 1. Out-in-out path The simplest option is to adopt a fairly stable external vantage similar to my ca­ nonical God's-eye view of the house, and imagine Lucy entering the front door and disappearing from view for a while, then reappearing as she emerges out of the back door.

Through is simply vague as to the location of its path's endpoints, but our construal of the LM imposes a more detailed interpre­ tation. The polysemy is not exactly "located" in either the preposition or the LM, but it arises from their syntactic combination under a particular pragmatic construal of the LM. 3. J. 3. Subjective effects The semantic details of through's interior-path variants reflect the relatively re­ duced status of the path's beginning and end points, and the correspondingly in­ creased salience of its continuous interior portion.

In particular it needs to be noted that everything has pertained solely to static spatial descriptions. Even when we were discussing paths with through and around, the construal transformations themselves applied only to the stable LM (the house), not to the paths themselves. The next obvious step, and the one that looks most promising, would be to extend the discussion to second-order LMs that have an inherent sequential (temporal) dimension as well as the spatial ones, making poor Lucy go through things like obstacle courses, divorces, life, and boring linguistics articles.
