Source/Author:  Davletshin, Albert. 2013. Fieldwork data. 
Notes:  Phononological segments:
p (pp), v (vv), t (tt), k (kk), h/s (hh/ss), m (mm), n (nn), r/l (rr), i (ii), e (ee), a (aa), o (oo), u (uu).

Notes:
1. geminate consonants and vowels do not represent independent phonological segments,
2. s (ss) are considered borrowings from Takuu by native speakers,
3. singular and plural forms of verbs (s. and pl. below) are systematically contrasted, I give singular forms only and I give suppletive forms if found in my files.
