Простое деепричастие в тундровом диалекте ненецкого языка

The paper concerns the main syntactic and semantic features of a basic converb in the Tundra Nenets language. According to certain classifications, the converb in Tundra Nenets should be regarded as a non-canonical, varying-subject, and contextual converb. It retains most verbal properties, and could be regularly built on the basis of any verbal stem. The converb can occupy the positions of adjunct, complement, and nominal attribute. The temporal (taxis) interpretation of the converb depends on the aspectual characteristics of the verbal stem from which it is derived. The research is based on the analysis of the examples from the published sources and on the author’s own fieldwork on the Yamal Peninsula.
