Mongolic Phonology and the Qinghai-Gansu Languages
The peripheral Mongolic languages of the Qinghai-Gansu sector in China comprise
Eastern Yugur (Shira Yugur) and the Shirongol languages. The latter might be subdivided in a Monguor department, which includes Mongghul and Mangghuer, and a Baoanic department, including Baoan, Kangjia, and Dongxiang (Santa).
The inner taxonomy of the Qinghai-Gansu languages can be mentioned in a separate section.
The Qinghai-Gansu languages are more and more well-described. They
have additionally been the topic of stories in language touch, commonly within the context
of the Amdo or Qinghai-Gansu Sprachbund.
This research will process the phonology of Qinghai-Gansu Mongolic
from a comparative historic standpoint. It presents an summary of the phonological advancements of the Qinghai-Gansu languages, evaluating them to the reconstructed ancestral language. whilst it is going to examine the
archaic good points that may be present in those languages, with a purpose to enhance the
reconstructions of person Mongolic lexemes.
The e-book ends with a comparative complement of approximately 1350

Conclusion In this paper, I have provided an analysis of CA facts of regressive voicing assimilation in OT. The analysis has shown that CA has both word-internal and word- final regressive assimilation. This process results in obstruents that agree in voicing. The direction of assimilation is always regressive. al constraint IDwfvoi. The chief finding is that CA licenses a voicing contrast prevocalically and at the end of the word but in clusters of obstruents, the first assimilates to the second.
Rafad The set of data given in (5–7) shows that regressive assimilation is employed in CA to avoid a sequence of two obstruents that disagree in the feature [voice]. 3 Methodology and data gathering To investigate regressive voicing assimilation in consonant clusters in CA, I collected data in Cairo in the course of six trips, each lasting one month, over a period of two years. One set of data was collected from TV series, TV programs, songs and interactions with native speakers of CA. The second set of data was elicited from native speakers who read two word lists which the author prepared.
Kabt e. kabd *! *! * * F f. kapt Candidate (16a) incurs a fatal violation of the agreement constraint. Both outputs (16b) and (16c) fare equally well with respect to the first constraint. However, candidate (16c) bests its rival by obeying the identity constraint of the obstruent in word-final position. Candidates (16d) and (16e) are ruled out by the agreement constraint and the positional faithfulness constraint, respectively, rendering (16f) optimal. The ranking in (16) can also account for examples where voicing contrasts are maintained before sonorant consonants, as can be seen in (17).
