Translated title of the contribution: A mutual Erzya language or a language mutual to Erzya

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleGeneral public


There are often discussions in meeting and the news media about the creation of a mutual Mordvin language, do we need one or not? This discussion is conducted in Russian or some foreign language, but very seldom is anything said about the matter in Erzya or Moksha. I usually look upon this with a humorous note -- first they should make a mutual Erzya language, and then they can decide where to go from there. The problem is that the discussion is powered with little or no regard to linguistic facts, so it is time to discuss matters of the Erzya language.
