The study examines vocalism in the Cholushman dialect. The speakers of this dialect live compactly in the settlements of Balykcha and Koo of the Cholushman Valley, located on the southern shores of the Teletskoye Lake. The phonetic structure of the Ulagan dialect in general and the Toles (Cholushman) dialect variant in particular has never been studied before. The system of vowels in the Toles (Cholushman) dialect is considered for the first time. The topic is relevant and very promising from a purely sсholarly point of view, since it helps to describe the phonetic structure of an unknown language, find new lines of research in turkology; it introduces new material that allows making corrections in the classification of dialects and dialect variants of the Altai region language. The novelty of the research lies in the fact that for the first time in turkology the phonetic structure and, in particular, vocalism of the Cholushman variant of the Ulagan dialect is subjected to systematic analysis. For the first time the Telengits language is divided into two dialects: Chuya and Ulagan. The Ulagan dialect of the Telengits language is in its turn divided into six dialect variants, the Toles (Cholushman) dialect variant among them. The Cholushman dialect, as well as other variants of the Ulugan dialect, has a specific vowel sound of the mixed type – [ä] (in addition to the usual eight short vowels and their long correlates). Another specific feature of the Cholushman dialect is the presence of diphthongs. In this paper we consider short vowels of the Tolesian dialect. Short vowels are subdivided into hard and soft ones.
