Гадание хана Боняка: к истории русско-половецких отношений

С. 36-38.

The paper is concerned with the Turkic parallels to fotune-telling by wolf howl, described by Rusian Primary chronicle in the article for the AM 6605 (AD 1097). Both written sources (Ahmad ibn Fadlan) and phraseology of modern Turkic languages (Tatar and Bashkir) witness that wolf howl is understood as an auspicious sign, so the chronicler’s evidence could be based on real practice.
