Some explorers roamed in Siberia around 1900 and encountered small
nations with undocumented languages. They stayed with the people for
some time and tried to record the basic vocabulary and grammar. The
dialog sometimes went like this:

  - In your language, is it correct to say, "I went fishing yesterday."

  - No.

  - What's wrong with it?

  - I didn't go fishing yesterday.
