Mongolization is a cultural and language shift whereby populations adopt the Mongolian language or culture. Kazakhs in Mongolia went through partial Mongolization. [1]

Historically, groups such as Ongud, Keraites, Naimans and Merkits were Mongolized Turks. Tanguts, who speak the Sino-Tibetan language but later became Mongolian, can be given as an example. Khotons are Mongolic but formerly were of Turkic ethnicity. [2]
