Mongolian language

The Mongolian language is the primary language of most of the residents of Mongolia, with the majority of people speaking the Khalkha[?] dialect. It is also spoken in some of the surrounding areas in provinces of China and the Russian Federation. Mongolian is a member of the Altaic language family, which also includes Turkish.

Mongolian has been written in a variety of alphabets over the years. The official Mongolian alphabet was created in the 12th century, although it has undergone transformations and occasionally been supplanted by other scripts since then.
