another site, created by a native speaker of kalmyk (and probably the most detailed on the net):
stories, texts, a fairly large world list, some grammatical papers, and most importantly - sound files.
another thing i should mention with regard to the discrepancies in the sound values given on the omniglot and wikipedia pages - the omniglot site afaik is correct. the sound values given in the wikipedia article seem to have been copied over from mongolian, whose sound system (especially where the vowels are concerned) is rather different.
so now a little bit about the language itself.
чи you (sg)
эн (энтн) this
тер (тертн) that (the latter two can be used to mean he/she/it)
та (тадн) you (pl)
альд (хама) where?
аав (paternal) grandfather
ээҗ (paternal) grandmother
наһц-аав (maternal) grandfather
наһц-ээҗ (maternal) grandmother
genitive case is generally formed by the suffix -ин
тер аав - эцкин
эцк. that is grandfather - father's father.
pronouns are exceptions:
тана (тадна) your
эн > энүнә
тер > терүнә
эн мини дегтр this is my book
тер бичг энүнә that is his letter
locative case is -д (sometimes -т):
школ school - школд
эн кемб? who is that?
эн юмб? what is that?
эдн кемб? who are they?
эдн эгч, дү хойр. they are a sister and a brother
эдн альд? where are they?
эдн энд. they are here.
эдн тенд. they are there.
эдн школд. they are at school.
"and" can be expressed in two ways:
with the word хойр (literally "two") after the second noun
эдн эгч, дү хойр.
or with the word болн
эн санл болн кеемә this is sanl and keema (personal names)
