The Salym dialect is of special interest for Khanty dialectology, because it is heterogeneous and combines both East Khanty and West Khanty features. The paper considers one of the earliest lexicographic descriptions of the dialect from the A. Sjögren's archives (first half of 19th century). The paper discusses characteristics of the earliest documentation of consonants in the dictionary that are necessary for its comparison with other literature on the matter. Some observations about Khanty consonants development are made based on the material.
