Revisiting Tungusic Classification from the Bottom Up: A Comparison of Evenki and Oroqen.
Whaley, Lindsay J.; Grenoble, Lenore A.; Li, Fengxiang
Language, v75 n2 p286-321 Jun 1999
Demonstrates that two Tungusic languages, Evenki and Oroqen, that have long been treated as a single language for classification purposes, are better treated as distinct linguistic varieties. Fundamental questions are raised about the current classification of Tungusic languages and a renewed examination is suggested of the role of dialect continua and contact languages in understanding the composition of the family.
