The present paper deals with identification of the Khitan words preserved in Late Middle Chinese transcription in mixed language verses from the QIDAN GUO ZHI. I argue that the only cogent way for identifying these Khitan words correctly is using the up-to-date version of Middle Chinese reconstruction, and not viewing them through the anachronistic prism of Modern and/or Early Mandarin readings of Chinese characters. On this basis I provide critical assessment of certain identifications proposed by my predecessors as well as several new identifications.
