More information:


    Telengit is one of the least-studied of the Altay group of languages. Its status in relation to standard Altay is unclear.

    Baskakov (1958) lists two dialects:

    1. Tölös (spoken along the banks of the Čulyšman and Baškauz and along the shores of Teletskoe lake) and
    2. Čuy (spoken in the Čuy valley).
    Data here is from the Tölös variety.
