Buryat (буряад хэлэн)

Buryat is a Mongolic language spoken by about 400,000 people mainly in the Republic of Buryatia, Ust-Ordyn and Aginsk autonomic districts of the Russian Federation, and also in northern Mongolia and northwestern China.

A method of writing Buryat using the Cyrillic alphabet was created after the 1917 Russian Revolution. Before that, the Buryats wrote in Traditional Mongolian script. In 1931 a version of the Latin alphabet was adopted to write Buryat, then in 1939 the Cyrillic alphabet was re-introduced.

Sample texts in Buryat

Эгсэ-континентальна уларилтай, Ази түбиин дундахи уула майлатай газарта, хүйтэн үбэл ба халуун зун болодог. Хуурай агаартай хадаа үбэлэй хүйтэниие бараг тэсэхээр байдаг. Зунай халуун үдэрэй тэндэ шанга болодог, гэбэшье үдэшэ үглөөндөө һэрюун зохид байдаг. Намарынь ута, Байгал далайн уһанай хyрэтэр, энэ үедэ Буряад орондо агаарай температура ороной европодохи нютагуудһаа дээшэ байхаяа һанадаг. Сибириин хабар март һарын һүүл багаар мэдэгдэдэг, апрелиин һүүл багаар түрүүшын ногоон бултайдаг.
