Abstract: The complex interdisciplinary investigation being carried out by the workers of three SB RAS Institutes is in agreement with the efforts of the world scientific society aimed at preserving the minority languages as a constituent part of a biological, cultural and linguistic unity. In the research, the phoneticians of LEPR (Institute of Philology, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences) make use of both conventional (dental-palatography, roentgenography, acoustic analysis of speech) and modern (magnetic-resonance imaging) investigation techniques. Objective experimental-phonetic data on the endangered languages have been obtained and reported to the scientific society. A computer database of the phonetics of the indigenous ethnic groups of Siberia and the neighboring regions has been formed, somatic tuning parameters have been revealed and a typology of the articulatory-acoustic bases is being developed.
