Mikhalʾchenko V. Yu.
The article deals with the unifactor or lineal classification of the languages of Russia (according to the presence/absence of the written form of a language, the number of speakers, functioning of the language in different spheres of communication). The author also analyses the number of languages of the indigenous peoples of Russia and emphasizes the necessity to consider not only the languages of low-numbered peoples but also a wide number of languages with corresponding features as the languages of indigenous peoples.
