This paper aims to present two texts of the Northern Dialect of Uilta (one of the
Tungusic languages, distributed on Sakhalin Island in Russia). The common theme
of the texts is how to cook one of their traditional preserved foods named sulukta,
which is made from boiled and crushed meat of fish.
The first text (Chapter 1.3 in this paper) was told by Ms. Irina Jakovlevna
Fedjaeva who was born in the village Val in 1940. The present author wrote the
explanation in Uilta from her dictation in October 28th 2010 in Val, Sakhalin oblast.
The second text (Chapter 2.3 in this paper) was told by Ms. Elena Alekseevna
Bibikova who was born in a camping place Dagi in 1940. The present author
recorded her oral explanation based on her own manuscript in Uilta in October 18th
2010 in Nogliki, Sakhalin oblast.
