This article is part of the annual report of the Russian ethno-linguistic mission on the island of Soqotra (Yemen). Collecting and analyzing “new” lexical material (that is, words missing from Wolf Leslau's monumental Lexique Soqotri, published in 1938 and fully preserving its value up to this day) is one of the principal goals of the team. This is abundantly justified by the extraordinary rich and archaic nature of the Soqotri vocabulary, which can be deservedly considered one of the last unexplored reservoirs of Semitic lexical stock. Each of the sixty “new words”, presented in Latin and Arabic script, is provided with grammatical information, text illustrations and, whenever possible, etymological glosses.
