Abstract

The Evenki language belongs among the Tungusic languages, which together with the Turkic and Mongolic languages form the Altaic language family. Researchers usually focus on the connections between two groups of languages: Turkic and Mongolic, or Mongolic and Tungusic. The only Turkic language with which Tungusic languages has direct contacts is Yakut. The linguistic con- tacts between Yakut and Evenki occurred in a later period. A large number of Yakut loanwords are present in those Evenki dialects which are spoken on Yakut territory. Since Yakut itself contains a very large number of Mongolic elements, many Mongolic items have actually reached the different Evenki dialects through Yakut. This paper will discuss a special category of Mongolic elements in the Evenki language. While etymologising them, I found several Evenki words which are of Mongolic origin, but which show Yakut peculiarities
