Vladimir Ivanovich Dal
Vladimir Dal was a founding member of the Russian Geographical Society. He knew at least six languages including Turkic and is considered to be one of the early Turkologists. During his lifetime he compiled and documented the oral history of the region that was later published in Russian and became part of modern folklore. Vladimir Dal was best known for Explanatory Dictionary of the Live Great Russian language. His dictionary began to have a strong influence on literature at the beginning of the 20th century.
