Andi, Botlikh and Avar mostly use native ‘time’ nouns to form temporal subordinate clauses. In Andi and Botlikh the cognate nouns rihi and rihu // riw are morphologising towards temporal converb markers, however in Avar, there is no such development. meχ and other nouns in temporal expressions in Avar more frequently appear in ergative, but only zaman appears more frequently in locative. In temporal subordinate clauses with a participle this difference disappears. Possibly zaman + locative is contact-induced through (Kipchak). Turkic languages spoken in the area though this requires further investigation.
Abstract for a talk on discoursive functions of the Northern Khanty possessive marker -en [POSS.2SG] and the grammatical properties of human names. This marker highly resembles a definite article. In Northern Khanty human names are grammatically nouns (are of type <e, t>), which is supporte by ethnographical data. For this reason these names necessarily bear this marker.
