Moksha[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Cognate with Erzya ашо ‎(ašo). SKES 45a tentatively suggests a possible link with Finnish ahka, hahkea, haahkea [sic haahka], Estonian ahka ‎(eider) [sic hahk], ahk ‎(gray), Eastern Mari ошо, ошы ‎(ošo, ošy), Khanty аш ‎(, white clay, chalk). UEW 3[1] suggests Proto-Finno-Ugric *ačka ‎(white). Veršinin considers linking with Tatar ак ‎(aq, white) impossible.[2]

Pronunciation[edit]

IPA(key): /ɑkʃɑ/
