ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the process of language shift and contact in Harqin of Ningcheng County, Inner Mongolia. It notes that the common process of language shift includes the development of bilingualism, limited use of Mongolian, and expanded use of Han. It also states that the shift from Mongolian to Han occurs faster in urban areas than in rural areas, among children than their parents, and among cadres than their peasants and students. It suggests that schools are vital defenses for protecting the mother tongue and culture in communities where Mongolia is endangered.
