Quantification in Erzya

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    This article is written to accompany the Erzya-language part of a multi-language text corpus demonstrating phenomena in quantification. Information is given on the morphology and NP syntax of the language so that the reader might readily comprehend the presentation of the text database. In both instances examples are given from corpus material, with my parsing and translation, to demonstrate various features pertinent to the better comprehension of Erzya quantification.
