Mordovia

Erzya / Moksha


Mordovia - Mordvin

The Mordvins are the inhabitants of Mordvinia or Mordovia. They have two names for themselves: Erzya and Moksha. Both groups have their ethnic identity, even though statistics never make a distinction between the two. Both Erzya and Moksha are used as literary languages, with the same alphabet. In the Republic of Mordovia (26 200 sq. km., capital city Saransk) only 32.5% were Mordvins in 1989. Moreover, only 27.2% of the Mordvins live in Mordovia. Most of the Mordvins are dwelled in groups in the provinces of Samara, Penza, Orenburg, Ulyanovsk and Nizhni-Novgorod, partly also in Central Asia and Siberia. Of 1,153,987 mordvins in 1989, 67% were Erzya or Moksha speakers. Moksha and Erzya are close Uralic languages, and their self-designations are Erzjanj Kelj and Moksenj Kälj.
