Hill Mari is a Finno-Ugric language related to Meadow Mari (mhr:). Official status in Mari El Republic.

Arguments in favour[edit]

  • I support the creation of this wiki. The language has a decent number of speclers and an official status in Russia. Since we have a native speaker and also a number of people ready to work on it, I do not see any problems.--Yaroslav Blanter 20:33, 21 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • 'Support'Support: Native speakers of Hill Mari have the competency and willingness to contribute to this project in the long-term.
