WHILE SUCH KNOWLEDGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL, A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF LINGUISTICS IS ASSUMED ON THE PART OF THE READER.

PART TWO, GRAMMAR, IS PREFACED BY A DESCRIPTION OF THE GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ALTAIC LANGUAGES, A CLASSIFICATION OF THE TURKIC LANGUAGES, AND THE CHARACTERISTICS AND POSITIONS OF YAKUT TURKISH. THIS INTRODUCTION IS FOLLOWED BY SECTIONS ON PHONOLOGY AND MORPHOLOGY, WHICH ARE PRESENTED IN ENGLISH ORTHOGRAPHY. PART THREE, GRADED READER, CONTAINS 80 SELECTIONS FROM YAKUT TEXTS WRITTEN IN 1948. SEVERAL SHORT POEMS AND OTHER LITERARY PIECES ARE INCLUDED ALSO. PART FOUR CONTAINS A YAKUT-ENGLISH GLOSSARY AND A TRANSLATION KEY TO THE READING SELECTIONS.
