The present work provides a brief grammatic description of the Udeghe
language, one of the Tungus-Manchu languages which is spoken in the
border areas of Russia and China in the Far East. It is an unwritten
language which is a vernacular for the 3% of the ethnic Udeghe. Udeghe
had a brief and very restricted circulation as a written language in
the early 1930s. The present grammatical sketch consists of three
major parts. The introduction deals with "General socio- and
geolinguistic data of the Udeghe language". The first part "Phonology"
contains the description of phonological specific features of Udeghe:
glottal stop (the Udeghe Language is the only Tungusic language having
this feature) and the vowel harmony violation. The second part
contains the description of the Udeghe morphology system (e.g. the
Udeghe is the only Tungusic language where the opposition of
evidentuality/non-evidentuality is expressed on the surface
morphological level). The third part "Syntax" gives the information of
the word order, clause structure, clause chaining, noun phrases, verb
serialization of the Udeghe language. The last part contains a
folklore text with an English translation and the relevant
bibliography. The author widely uses the data received during several
expeditions.
