Selkup (sel)

This is the Selkup language, the only Southern Samoyedic language not yet extinct (unlike Mator and Kamas), spoken by approx. 1,500 people in the area between the rivers Ob and Yenisei. Verbs in Selkup distinguish pefective vs. imperfective aspect, 8 moods and the tenses present, future, past, and past narrative in the indicative and inferential moood. There are two conjugation classes: subective and objective conjugation. In both classes verbal suffixes indicate person and number of the subject; in the objective conjugation the presence/absence of a direct object seems to be indicated as well, but in contrast to e.g. the Northern Samoyedic languages no concrete phi-features of this object are indicated - the markers are invariant with respect to the phi-features of the direct object. Intransitive verbs are always in the subjuctive conjugation; transitive verbs may fall in either class, depending e.g. on the locus of the sentence focus and ellipsis of the object.
