Phonetically, both the vowel system and the consonant systems are broadly similar. A characteristic is their indeterminate vowel, one of seven in the group’s vowel system. The consonant system lacks voiced plosives but has uvulars, glottals and pharyngals. The group’s phonemic systems have differing compositions. Itelmen is the richest, having consonants unknown in the other languages as well as variants on the basic types of vowels and consonants. The phonemically poorest is Kerek, which lacks even some of the basic phonemes in the group.

Nouns are used in predicative forms to express the person, number and tense. The extent to which these forms are used varies from one language to another: it is greatest in Nenets and least in Selkup. Adjectives are closely linked with substantives. A number of the latter, primarily those denoting material, assume adjectival functions when in the attributive position. The comparative and superlative degrees are expressed by a similar device: a compound word using the adjective in the direct case.
