Sattsaev E.B. Genesis and transformation of the name of numerals in the ossetian language

Abstract. . In Iranian languages the names of numerals are not the same. In the Ossetian language, the system of numerals retained very archaic features. Numerals in Ossetian are divided into four categories: quantitative, ordinal, distributive and fractional. Among the quantitative numerals, the figure "nine" is of special interest. The model for constructing this figure indicates the existence of the octal number system in Iranian languages.In the Ossetian account over twenty there are two number systems - decimal and twenty, which speaks about the archaism of the names of numerals. Many archaic features were preserved by the Ossetian in terms of the formation of ordinal and distributive numerals. Other entities from the names of numerals in the Ossetian language are descriptive in nature and may not go back to ancient prototypes.


Gazeev  V.M.,  Gurbanov  A.G.,  Gurbanova  O.A.,  Popov S.V.  Collectible minerals  and  ornamental  stones  in  ultrabasite  and  basite  rocks  of the  North  Caucasus

Abstract. Examining geological reports, scientific publications and routing studies minerals and ornamental stones that occur in ultrabasic and basic rocks of the North Caucasus have been identified. It is found that their origin is related to metasomatic processes that occurred in the contacts of ultrabasic rocks, gabbroids and granites and also in the Pre-Jurassic weathering crust and in fault zones. A brief description of the most typical occurrence of collectible minerals and ornament stones has been provided.

Archegova  О.Р.,  Ereminа  A.F.,  Magkoev  Т.Т.,  Pashkov  A.D.  The  Study  of  the  cluster  structure  in  the  ice-water  system  by  the  IR spectroscopy  method

Abstract. In this paper a study of the ice-water system behavior in the field of phase transition using the IR-spectroscopy method has been carried out, which provides real-time information in the melting process up to the room temperature. The sample is filtered membrane purification water that was frozen at a temperature of - 50° C. The analysis of the results shows that in the field of the ice-water phase transition, there occurs a cluster formation process with the emergence of an ordered arrangement atoms areas that preserve the hexagonal ice structure and the appearance of cubic packing of the original tetrahedra as the most stable elementary motifs.

Badov  A.D.,  Badov  O.A.  Family  structure,  mariage  and  divorce  rates of  the  population  in  North  Ossetia

Abstract. The peculiarities of marital status, marriage and divorce rates of the population in North Ossetia are investigated. The trends of changes in indicators over the past 60 years, as well as geographical differences within North Ossetia have been revealed. Recommendations to optimize the situation are given. Demographic downfall in the 1990s had the most negative impact on the level of marriages and divorces. A low level of nuptiality in North Ossetia was combined with a high level of divorce. A significant number of people who "missed" their marriage age are still single. The improvement of the social and economic life conditions has had a positive impact on the marital status of the population. In the Republic, the marriage rate has increased and the divorce rate has decreased, so the divorce index and the number of divorces per 1000 marriages have been reduced. In recent times, however, there has been a trend to decrease the number of marriages and to increase the number of divorces. Currently every second marriage breaks up in the region. There is a significant territorial differentiation in terms of marriage and divorce rates. In urban settlements both mariage and divorce rates were significantly higher than in rural areas. The most favorable situation is observed in the Ardon and Kirov districts. The worst situation is in the Mozdok district. There has been a transition from complex families to simple ones in the Republic. In the mid-2010s a small number of people born in the early 1990's began to reach marriageable age, and this can lead to an even more catastrophic demographic situation, or more precisely to a further collapse of the birth rate. In this regard, it is urgent to take concrete actions to improve the demographic situation.


Pashkov S.V., Vilkov V.S. The feasibility of creating and efficiency of new faunal areas in the North Kazakhstan region

Abstract. The article analyzes the efficiency of Aksuatsky and Akzhansky faunal areas creation in the northern (motley-grass) steppe of the North Kazakhstan region, combining steppe and water biotopes which were intended if not to restore then at least to stabilize the condition of fauna in the considered Special Protected Natural Areas. However, change in the number of animals and birds during the period of 2013-2017 testifies the unsteadiness and almost total dependence on natural climatic factors, even being in a state of landscape “conservation” in the reserved mode. Based on the above it has been assumed that the environmental protection measures in the new faunal areas are predominantly palliative, but they have not made any significant contribution to the stabilization of sozological representativity of animals, except of groundhog-baybak, that are being considered by the Special Protected National Areas.
