Summary/Abstract: The article presents the results of using instrumental data of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and of acoustic analysis to explore the articulatory-acoustic bases of the Telengits, one of the ethnic groups of South Altai. The AAB of Telengits in the field of consonantism is characterized by a strong and moderate tension of the speech organs, while weak degree of tension is unusual. In addition to the main articulation, an important role in developing the specificity of the Telengit AAB is played by the additional articulations: labialization, palatalization, velarization, uvularization, pharyngealization; the lack of nazalized articulations indirectly reflects the overall strong tension. A clear direct correlation between the degree of articulatory tension and the level of expression of additional features was revealed. In the most concentrated form, the set of these parameters marks the ejective settings articulated with a raised larynx. Set of characteristics of Telengits articulation detects the proximity of the Ust-Kan settings, Ongudai substantially different from Telengits implementations.
