Moksha[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From a Turkic language, compare Tatar [script needed] (in).[1] Veršinin notes resemblance with Eastern Mari эн (en, id.) (usually considered a Turkic borrowing.) He also compares Erzya ине (ine, great) (according to SKES, cognate with Estonian enam (more), Finnish enin (the biggest), Livonian jennõ (a lot)) also comparing Proto-Finnic superlative suffix — Finnish suuri (big), suurin (the biggest).[2]
