Kazakh, Uzbek, Turkmen, Mansi, Hanty, Selkup, and other languages were measured on the basis of functioning of certain consonantal groups in a large sample.
Eastern Khanty, Southern Selkup, Ket, Teleut, Nganasan) have also been thoroughly described (https://ling.tspu.edu.ru/en/archive.html?year=2015&issue=4; https://ling.tspu.edu.ru/en/archive.html?year=2016&issue=4; Vorobjova, Novitskaja, Girfanova, Vesnin 2017).
