New Dolgan etymologies

Peter Sauli Piispanen

Pages 186 - 229

In this paper, a total of sixty-two new etymologies of Dolgan, the northernmost Turkic language spoken around the Taimyr Peninsula, are discussed. The etymologies are discussed with phonological and semantic details, and are either loanword etymologies from Evenki, Mongolic, Russian or Yukaghir, or continuations from Pre-Yakut, Common Turkic or Proto-Turkic. These analyses add to the already fairly well researched field of Dolgan etymologies.

Keywords: etymology, lexical borrowing, Tungusic, Turkic, Russian, (Pre-)Yakut, Mongolic, Evenki, Dolgan, Yukaghir
