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]
