By Irina Nikolaeva

The booklet is the 1st enormous description of Tundra Nenets, a hugely endangered Uralic language spoken in Western Siberia and the north of eu Russia, destined for the foreign linguistic group. Its goal is to supply a radical documentation of the entire significant grammatical phenomena within the language. The grammar really emphasizes the outline of syntax, simply because this has routinely been a truly overlooked zone of Nenets experiences. Many syntactic elements haven't acquired a scientific therapy within the present literature or haven't been addressed in any respect. because the current works are usually not simply to be had, incomplete, or idiosyncratically offered, Tundra Nenets syntax has performed very little function within the concerns of recent linguists, even if extra descriptively or theoretically prone. The publication is basically descriptive: it isn't meant to deal with theoretical questions in keeping with se and the outline isn't really intended to be formulated inside a selected framework. notwithstanding, it identifies and discusses concerns that are of large typological and theoretical curiosity. the outline is richly exemplified. lots of the stated examples are the results of fieldwork performed through the in quite a few destinations. they're sentences produced by means of local audio system both spontaneously or elicited in accordance with questions posed in Russian. different examples are excerpts from unique texts.
