Abstract:

The article examines historico-contactological characteristics of geographical vocabulary of Tyumen dialects, inherited from Finno-Ugric languages. The local borrowings, with respect to the “transferred” Baltic-Finnish borrowings, are specific to this group and originate from Ob-Ugric languages. Etymological interpretation of local Finno-Ugric words, carried out in this work, takes into consideration not only source language data, but also different situations of Ugric-Turkish-Russian interaction, which have been developing since the end of the XVI century.
