Authors have made this phrasebook close to real language spoken by Evenks living in Yakutia (on the north-east of Russia). Some words can be written not as prescribed by the rules of literary Evenk language. Some words can be written different in different cases. However all phrases of the phrasebook are well-understood by all Evenks living in Russia.
