Summary/Abstract: The article takes into account the field data collected by the author during the work with native speakers of the Yamal dialect of Tundra Nenets in the Tambey tundra and Syo-Yakha (Yamalsky municipal district, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug) in April―September 2010 and then added in 2014―2016. The article deals with problems of suprasegmental pho netics of the Yamal dialect (the idiom of Syo-Yakha and the Tambey tundra of the Yamalsky municipal district). In particular, it considers the basic and secondary acoustic correlates of stress (word accent) in the disyllabic underived nouns with homogeneous vocalic structure (with high vowels) in the Yamal dialect. Combinatorics of the primary and secondary acoustic correlates of stress in the Yamal dialect are considered, after which the conclusion is made that the word accent in the Yamal dialect is expiratory and quantitative, i. e. the main acoustic correlates of stress are temporal marking and expiratory marking of a stressed vowel as compared with the unstressed. While marking of a stressed vowel of the first syllable is mainly based on the expiratory emphasis, marking of a stressed vowel of the second syllable is based on the temporal emphasis, which can be explained by the general language tendencies (long pronunciation of the final open syllable and more loud and intense pronunciation of the beginning of a phonetic word compared with the end).
