Transcription of "Tangut" with Chinese characters[edit]

I think it would be helpful to point out that Dǎngxiàng is only the standard pinyin romanization of the modern Mandarin Chinese pronunciation of 黨項(党项). In Cantonese, the ethnonym of the Tangut would be romanized as Dong2-hong6, and in Korean, it would be romanized as Danghang. There is an odd resemblance to the ethnonym of the Mongolic-speaking Daur (formerly also Dahur or Daghur) people. Ebizur 18:42, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

This is a very confused and confusing article. How can the author leave out the work of the best-known historian of the Xi Xia, Ruth Dunnell? I don't have expert knowledge of the origins of the Tangguts but this article seems very confused on the issue of the Xianbei and particularly on the origins of the Monguors and Tu (which most historians place much later than the time of the Tangguts). The authors cite the Cambridge History article, but the account here of the Tangguts is strongly contradicted by the Cambridge History at many points. A perplexing article, much of which makes very little sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Walt 45805 (talkcontribs) 18:56, 14 September 2011 (UTC)


Mongolian terms ending with "-t" in reference of ethnic groups mean "people"[edit]
