This paper proposes a multi-lingual phonetic-linguistic model for Mongolian language based on the study of the classification and the postulates of such models. This model is commonly applicable for various fields as linguistic/phonetic/dialectal/ language educational studies as well as speech recognition. Its application to major dialects of Mongolian has marked 91 % on word level recognition. In this paper, therefore, we first introduce the structure of language and classification of Mongolian dialectal speech. Next, we analyze and classify fundamental characteristics in order to define phoneme labels. Lastly, we apply the common models to a simple word recognition experiment.
