Evenki is one of the nine Tungusic languages spoken in Siberia and Northern China. This books gives a complete description of all this language's linguistics domains. Evenki is remarkable for both the vast area where it is spoken- from Western Siberia to the Amur regions and from the shores of the Arctic Ocean to Northern China- and for its immense number of dialects and subdialects.

About the Series

Descriptive Grammars

The rise of language typology and and increasing interest in the study of language universals have produced a large number of theoreticians who require accurate, well-formulated descriptive data from a wide range of languages. The Descriptive Grammars series provides the required framework, making cross-language comparisons possible and enabling a really fruitful interaction between theoretical and descriptive linguistics. A wide variety of well-known and lesser-known languages are covered and the information is arranged to be readily accessable to linguists working on language universals, language typology, comparative syntax, morphology, or phonology.
