General

This list is 'in beta'. Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Kazakh, Turkish, and Korean glosses are tentative. Comments and corrections welcome. Hover over Green Lettering Green lettering at this site hides a tool tip with glosses, further explanations, etc. Hover cursor to reveal. to see additional information.

The lapwings are known in Mongolian as Хавтгаалж khavtgaalj or Хавтгалж khavtgalj, with a related form Хавтгаалжин khavtgaaljiŋ. (Хавтгалж khavtgalj is listed in some dictionaries as meaning 'snipe'. Some Russian dictionaries give Заараг шувуу zaarag shuvuu for the lapwings, but this appears to be properly used for birds in the Sylviidae.)

The Buryat name is Хабтагаалжан khabtagaaljan or Хабтаалжан khabtaaljan.

In contrast, the plovers do not appear to have a widely accepted name in Mongolian. In Inner Mongolia, the plovers are called Тонгор tongor, a word found in large Mongolian dictionaries as the name of a 'bird that lives on shores'. In pre-2007 ornithological lists, the plovers are called Сүвээ цагаан süvee tsagaaŋ, meaning 'side-white', mostly applied to the Pluvialinae, and Хиазат khiazat, meaning 'laced' or 'inlaid', applied to the Charadriinae, but these are not found in ordinary dictionaries with the meaning 'plover'. (For the record, Japanese-Mongolian dictionaries give Усны шаазгай usni shaazgai 'water magpie'.)

Ornithological naming

The 2007 "binomial-style" official list assigns names to genera as follows:

Genus Inner M old Inner M Old New

Three separate names have been assigned to the three lapwing genera (which are not recognised in Howard and Moore). Besides the creation of one new name (Зуунхурга zuuŋhurag 'hundred lambs') for Microsarcops, ornithological Mongolian attempts to use minor linguistic variation between Xавтгаалж khavtgaalj and Xавтгалж khavtgalj -- both written identically in the traditional script -- to distinguish between Vanellus and Chettusia.
