Lyudmila EFIMOVA-Nurgun AFANASIEV
Abstract: This article explores speech patterns or formulas of algys tyllara 'algys speech formulae' (prayers) by Mongolian People in Russia. The authors reveal characteristics of speech formulae which allowed them to consider the initial form of the Yakut algyses as they are thought to be the basis for the formation of the genre. They found similarities to the Yakut speech formulae in the verbal expression of the Turkic peoples of Siberia, the Volga region; the Kalmyks and the Turks.
