Abstract:

Note: This is the second printing of a previously announced book.

The Vogul language (endogenous name: Mansi) is spoken by approximately
3,000 speakers in northwestern Siberia. Together with Ostyak, it forms the
Ob-Ugrian branch of the Finno-Ugrian language family and is generally
considered to be closest relative of Hungarian. In the introductory section
general information on the Vogul people and their sociolinguistic situation
is given. The dialect described in the following sections on Vogul
phonology, morphology, and syntax is the Northern one, spoken by the
greatest majority of modern Voguls and forming the basis for the literary
language. Vogul is in the most respects a typical agglutinative language
and its grammar is relatively straightforward, i.e. unencumbered with major
rules of inflection. In this study particular care is taken to place
(Northern) Vogul in a general Finno-Ugrian and a complete Vogul context.
This means that although the major emphasis lies on the synchronic
description of (Northern) Vogul, the discussion is supplemented by
obervations of a historical nature to show to which extent (Northern) Vogul
has adhererd to general Finno-Ugrian patterns and to which extent it has
diverged both from the related languages and other Vogul dialects. This
study closes with a (Northern) Vogul folklore text with an interlinear
transcription and translation.
