Welcome to www.mari-language.com. This website aims to provide essential materials on the Mari language, both for students of the Mari language and for native speakers, on the Internet, free of charge.
Note that this website is, and will for some years, remain a work in progress. Links to various materials will be color-coded, depending on how far along we are in creating them.
|Red links lead to descriptions of materials we intend to make available, but have yet to publish in any form.|
|Yellow links lead to incomplete materials that are already usable, but not to the extent that they will be, once our project comes to an end.|
|Green links lead to materials that are complete.|
These color codes will be used throughout the website.
Where materials are still incomplete or missing, we provide a description, as well as a rough estimate of when they are to be finished. Consult the Schedule Section to obtain a general overview of our agenda, or the About Us Section to learn more about who we are and how to get in touch with us. To keep up to date with recent developments, follow the regularly updated Weblog, or our Facebook Page. Kindred projects and organizations, as well as general links that might be of value to people with a vested interest in the Mari language, can be found in the Links Section.
This website is based at the Department of Finno-Ugric Studies of the University of Vienna,
with assistance being provided by individuals from around the world. Currently, our materials are mostly aimed at people who have English competencies.
We are theoretically interested in creating Russian-language versions of materials offered on this website, but our capability to do so will depend on
future co-operation with other educational institutions.
