Abstract

Dolgan, a Turkic language of the Taimyr Municipal District (Krasnojarskij kraj) and the adjacent Anabar ulus in the Sakha Republic (also known as the Republic of Yakutia) of Northern Siberia is in many respects a typical agglutinative and head-final language of Eurasia. This study focused on the syntax and semantics of the Dolgan quantifiers bari and barita as encountered in field data and in a recent Dolgan novel.

Keywords: syntax, semantics, Taimyr Dolgan, Turkic, Sakha Republic, Republic of Yakutia, Northern Siberia
