GULYA, JANOS
THE VAH OSTYAK DIALECT, UPON WHICH THIS CHRESTOMATHY OF EASTERN OSTYAK IS BASED, IS THE RICHEST OF THE OSTYAK LANGUAGE GROUP AND OCCUPIES AN IMPORTANT PLACE IN THE FAMILY OF THE RELATED FINNO-UGRIC LANGUAGES. ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR, THIS DIALECT SPOKEN BY A WEST SIBERIAN TRIBE EXHIBITS SOME "SURPRISING AGREEMENTS OF TYPE" WITH THE SENTENCE STRUCTURE OF ENGLISH. THE INTRODUCTION TO THIS VOLUME CONTAINS A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE OSTYAKS AND THEIR LANGUAGE, WITH A BIBLIOGRAPHY LISTING THE MORE IMPORTANT WORKS IN EASTERN OSTYAK LITERATURE. THE GRAMMATICAL OUTLINE PRESENTS A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PHONOLOGY AND GRAMMAR BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE AUTHOR'S RESEARCH CARRIED ON AMONG OSTYAK STUDENTS IN LENINGRAD IN 1956-57. THE SECTION OF TEXTS, TAKEN FROM THE AUTHOR'S COLLECTION AND OTHER SOURCES, IS ACCOMPANIED BY TRANSLATIONS AND FOLLOWED BY AN OSTYAK-ENGLISH GLOSSARY. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SEVERAL TEXTS IN CYRILLIC SCRIPT, THE OSTYAK IN THIS VOLUME APPEARS THROUGHOUT IN TRANSCRIPTION. THIS IS AN INDIANA UNIVERSITY PUBLICATION, AND MAY BE ORDERED FROM THE EDITOR, URALIC AND ALTAIC SERIES, PATTON HOUSE, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401, FOR $3.00. (AMM)
