Manuscripta Castreniana Jurak-Samoiedica

Manuscripta Castreniana Jurak-Samoiedica publishes the notes recorded in and about the Tundra Nenets and Forest Nenets languages by Matthias Alexander Castrén during his field expeditions, archived in the National Library of Finland. Castrén carried out studies among the Tundra Nenets in 1842–1844 and again in 1846, and among the Forest Nenets briefly in 1845. The manuscripts in question contain a large collection of Tundra Nenets materials and a much smaller Forest Nenets corpus.
