Summary The book is the first substantial description of Tundra Nenets, a Uralic language spoken in Western Siberia and the north of European Russia. It provides a lasting piece of documentation of this highly endangered language. For a language as little researched as Nenets, any aspect of grammar may prove to be of potential significance for the field of linguistics and turn out to be theoretically challenging
