8) In Tundra Nenets, R"Macb is used and drMACb appears, albeit very infrequently in older Forest Enets data: (9)
Instead, both Enets languages and Nganasan show a different verb which is of common origin but shows a different syntactic realization.
In contrast, in both Tundra Enets as well as Nganasan, the etymologically related verb shows indeed the standard negation pattern of negative auxiliaries NEG.
Concerning the encoding of such predicatives, Tundra Nenets, Forest Enets and Tundra Enets do not require a free-standing copula, neither in the aorist nor the past tense:
Those included the Nenets no-, no-, Nganasan ne- and Enets i- (Castren 1854 : 436-437, 493-494, 518.
Therefore I regard it as possible to suppose that etymologically the Nenets no-, no- does not belong to other North Samoyedic negative auxiliary stems with the secondary initial consonant n- (Nenets ni-, Nganasan ni-, Enets ne-), but is a separately standing independent word no-, no- (< *no-), instead.
As far as Enets is concerned, Castren's grammar of Samoyedic languages (1854) has remained the most systematic source for the topic.
However, the etymological adherence of the Enets i- to the Nenets no-etc.
Prokof'jev ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 1937 : 76) who first showed in print that the two Enets languages use different personal pronouns, Forest Enets 2Sg u, 3Sg Bu, Tundra Enets 2Sg tod'i, 3Sg nitoda, and that the Forest Enets pronouns resemble the same pronouns in Ket.
By adding the equivalent forms from both Enets varieties (3) one sees, that Tundra Enets resembles Nganasan much more, as with the exception of 3P, Tundra Enets is etymologically closer to Nganasan than to any other Northern Samoyedic language.
The purpose of this paper is to review Hajdu's account of personal pronouns in Nenets and Enets (1983) and to focus on some peculiar details that are interesting from a wider typological perspective.
The second part of this paper addresses the Forest Enets pronoun borrowing case in more detail, as its implications for the study of language contact from both an Uralic but also a general perspective has several peculiarities which have not received as much attention as it actually deserves.
The evidential under discussion expresses an inferred action and it occurs in the forms of the whole Enets conjugation paradigm: in all three conjugations (indefinite, definite and reflexive), in all three persons (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and in all three numbers (singular, dual and plural) and both in the affirmative and negative speech.
But Enets has a special suffix of preterital interrogative -sa-/-da-/-ta-/-ca- used in Nganasan and Selkup as a primal common normal suffix of preterite in affirmative clauses.
Yet, as seen from the above Enets textual example (3), it has nothing to do with expressing a preterite action but only with its evidential meaning.
