География многоязычия народов колымско-алазейской тундры в конце XIX – начале ХХ века. Часть 2. Эвены и их контакты с соседями
This study is the second one in a series of studies devoted to the emergence and development of
multilingualism in the Kolyma-Alazeya tundra area, a region where the territories of Yukaghir, Even,
Chukchi, Yakut, and Russian settlements overlap. The starting point of this study are Evens, their arrival
to the area, their contacts with the neighbors, and the languages they spoke. Based on the various sources
(the works and reports of ethnographers, travelers, and missioners) we trace the migration routes of Even
nomadic groups from the end of the 19 th to the beginning of the 20 th centuries in this region.
