Introduction: Translanguaging in Song: Orature and Plurilingualism in Northeast Tibet

  • Gerald Roche (author)
This introduction, in addition to providing background information on the Mongghul people and their oral traditions, examines the significance of the collated materials in their capacity to illuminate traditional patterns of multilingualism on the northeast Tibetan Plateau. Subsequent chapters each present a different Mongghul long narrative song, with texts in three languages: Mongghul, Chinese, and English.
