This paper discusses three aspects related to the spelling and grammar of the Tatar verb: 1) spelling of a number of “problematic verbs”, about which various sources – popular translation and spelling dictionaries – give different indications (тон?рга ‘muddy', туң?рга ‘freeze', таш?рга ‘to overflow (about the river)', уб?рга ‘absorb'; бөл?ргә ‘go broke', бүл?ргә ‘divide', көл?ргә ‘laugh', үл?ргә ‘die', эл?ргә ‘hang'); 2) existence of differentiating spellings confirmed according to lexicographic sources for some verbs and not confirmed for others; 3) existence of two-base and variably two-base verbs and the definition of the exact composition of each of these verb groups. These aspects are relevant because they are inextricably linked with the algorithm for finding the base of the Tatar verb by its infinitive deduced by the author independently while working on writing a self-help guide of the Tatar language published in Kazan at the end of 2022. For the error-free functioning of this algorithm – both from the standpoint of a person studying the Tatar language as a non-native (who needs this algorithm) and from the standpoint of a computer program working with Tatar verbs – it is necessary that it is possible to carry out any Tatar verb through it with a deliberately correct result (for example, туң?рга – туң-, көл?ргә – көл-, йолкырга – йолк-/йолык- or йолкы-), and for this, in turn, it is necessary to finally determine the spelling of “problematic verbs” and the composition of groups of verbs having two consonant bases (two-base verbs) and two consonant bases or one vowel base (variably two-base verbs). For this purpose, with the involvement of the resources of the Electronic Fund of Dictionaries and the Written Corpus of the Tatar language, a study which represents the scientific novelty was conducted and its results are presented below.
