Mongolian is the best-known member of the Mongolic language family. It is mother tongue to about 5.7 million people, including 2.5 million residents of Mongolia, where it is the main and official language. It is also widely spoken by at least 2.7 million residents of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region of China, where it also enjoys status as an official language. Speakers of the Kharchin and Khorchin dialects also inhabit the nearby Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces. The primary dialect in Mongolia is called Khalkha and it employs an adapted version of Cyrillic, while, in Inner Mongolia, it is written using the traditional Mongolian script. Mongolian evolved from Middle Mongolian, the language spoken in the Mongol Empire of the 13-14th centuries, a transition which involved a major shift regarding vowels, the case system, and the verbal structure. While there are roughly 5 million ethnic Mongolians in China, significant language loss in now being experienced, especially among the urban youth, due to the dominance of Mandarin Chinese.
