Abstract:

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
observations of a historical nature to show to which extent (Northern)
Vogul has adhered 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. (2nd printing)
