In this paper, we describe MongoIE, an Open Information Extraction (Open IE) system for the Mongolian language. We present the characteristic of the language and, after analyzing the available preprocessing tools, we describe the features used for building the system. We have implemented two different approaches: (1) Rule-based and (2) Classification. Here, we describe them, analyze their errors and present their results. In the best of our knowledge, this is the first attempt in building Open IE systems for Mongolian. We conclude by suggesting possible future improvements and directions.
