Moksha (мокшень кяль)

Moksha is a Mordvinic language spoken by about half a milllion people in the Republic of Mordovia, and other parts of the Russia Federation. There are also Moksha speakers in Armenia and the USA.

Moksha and Erzya (Эрзянь кель), a closely related though mutually unintelligible language, are collectively known as Mordvin. These languages have co-official status with Russian in the Republic of Mordovia.
