Mator (mtm)

Mator is an extinct Southern Samoyedic language. There are no potential person portmanteaus because the distinction between conjugation types (subjective vs. objective) which is present in the other Uralic languages has collapsed. Remnants of this pattern can be found in tense marking: There are two different present tense markers for transitive verbs, ŋ and j, which precede the subject agreement suffix and whose distribution resembles the distribution of the former subjetive vs. objective conjugation. But perhaps the use of the different tense markers with transitive verbs is guided by purely phonological reasons. For discussion see Helimski (1997:152f) and Körtvély (2005:30f).
Material


For partial paradigms and examples see Helimski (1997); Körtvély (2005). Forms of the verbal conjugation are only documented for 1sg and 3sg, other forms may be attested in some examples but they are not confirmed.
