Daur is a Mongolic language spoken in northern China and parts of Mongolia. In China it is spoken in Hailar District in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, in Qiqhar Prefecture in Heilongjiang Province, and in Tacheng Prefecture in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. It is also spoken in Hentiy Province (Хэнтий аймаг) in the northeast of Mongolia.
In 1999 there were about 96,000 speakers of Daur, which is also known as Daghur, Daurian, Daguor, Dagur, Dawar, Dawo'er, Tahuerh or Tahu. Dialects of Daur include Buteha, Qiqiha'er, Haila'er and Ili.
Daur has no standard written form, but a version of Pinyin is sometimes used. During the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912) the Manchu alphabet was used to write Daur. The Cyrillic alphabet has also been used to write Daur.
