Qinghai Gansu Sprachbund in North-Western China is a result of profound long-lasting interaction between speakers of four language groups: Mongolic, Turkic, Bodic and Sinitic, belonging to two greater genetic families: Sino-Tibetan and Altaic. Our paper is focused on three Sinitic idioms, namely Tangwang (its speakers live side by side with speakers of Mongolic Dongxiang language in Dongxiang autonomous county of Gansu), Wutun (which is connected with Amdo Tibetan and Mongolic Bonan languages in Qinghai), and Gangou (being in contact with Mongolic Mangghuer language in Minhe-Hui-Tu autonomous county of Qinghai). These languages lost some typical features of Sinitic languages and acquired a number of Altaic or Bodic linguistic phenomena, e.g. case and possessive marking, usage of plural markers, structure of causative and conditional constructions, quotation marking etc. We will compare the linguistic features and processes of these three idioms within a wider context including not only neighboring Bodic, Turkic and Mongolic languages, but also other Sinitic idioms of the region.
