Comments: В подаче материала Крашенинникова для юж. камч. неправильно истолковано рукописное русское "н" = [n] как "и" = [i], хотя не исключены возможности, что автор отобразил таким способом сильно палатализованный -ń-, или того, что в данном говоре -ń- закономерно переходил в -j-. Последние решения предполагают сначала развитие -ŋ- в бифонемное сочетание -nK-, а потом после возникшей (в невыясненных условиях) палатализации переход в -j-. Поэтому естественней считать первый вариант интерпретации.
