Description:The session includes a dialogue by a married Tatar couple. The husband, Karim Nadyrshymovich Akhmetshin, born 1941, is a descendant of the Mishar Tatars who moved from Mozhgi, Udmurtiya, to Siberia in the 1910s with the Stolypin reforms. The wife, Nasima Ramazanovna Akhmetshina, born 1949, is a descendant of Tatars who moved as a whole village from the Nizhniy Novgorod area to Siberia in the 1840s. Her language variety displays a strong influence of local Siberian Turkic languages on the Tatar variety. In the course of the dialogue, the couple discuss differences between their dialects, facts of their biography, how they married, where they worked, how they lived before and how they are living now. They also make commentaries that they do not feel themselves way different from both the Kazan Tatars and the local Tomsk Tatars because all these are just ?Tatar?. Karim was born in the village of Novo-Islambul, Krivosheino District of the Tomsk Region. It was a Tatar village with a number of ethnic Polish families. His father was Nadyrsha, born 1900, and mother ? Sauda, born 1902; both were ethnic Tatars. He started his primary school in Tatar, and learned in the literary Tatar language till the 5th grade when he went to a Russian school. This is the time when he started to speak Russian. He finished 7 grades of school and then worked on a collective farm as a tractor driver and mechanic technician. He?s been living in the city of Tomsk since 1977. Nasima was born in the village of Shuldat, Bogotol District of the Krasnoyarsk territory. When her ancestors moved to Siberia around 1840, there were 360 houses in the village. Now the number of houses and thus dwellers has substantially decreased. Her mother was born in the same village in 1922; she spoke some Russian. Nasima studied in the Tatar school till the 4th grade, and then she went to a Russian school where she learned to speak the language. After high school, Nasima worked as a milker. Karim and Nasima married in 1968, they have three children; they spoke Russian with children, however the children understand Tatar, too. Their middle daughter is fluent in Tatar because she spent quite a lot of time in Shuldat.
