In the next century the Arabian geographer, Yakut, describes it as deserted.
The Yakut listened attentively as long as he did not understand what I was asking.
Meanwhile the petrified body had been laid in the coffin, and placed upon the small one-horse Yakut sledge.
Sometimes a wizard expects no fee unless he is successful, as among the Tungus, Yakut and Buryats.
A Yakut thinks nothing of working for three or four days without either eating or drinking.
After three days' march up the river he fell in with a Yakut tribe, from whom he got a rich booty of sable and other furs.
Evidently those Yakut frosts were beginning, which reduce the most terrible Arctic cold to insignificance.
Hence it is probable that it is to the Yakut language that the term Yukahir (also Yukadzhir) is referrible.
That the Yakut are Turk, is placed beyond reasonable doubt; although the only test has been that of language.
There was deep silence in the room,—a rather unusual thing in a place where several Yakut people are together.
