This paper discusses the problem of the elementary simple sentence (ESS) as a minimal syntactic unit in Siberian languages. The linguistic status of ESS is provided by the model of ESS. This model is based on the predicate and its obligatory valences. Special attention is given to theoretical ideas on the nature of the linguistic valence.
