Declension[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

While morphologically a genitive form of мокша (mokša), Poljakov's books feature what appears to be a type of re-nominalization, wherein this inflected form is being further inflected: мокшеннеть (mokšennetʹ) (singular definite genitive), мокшеннева (mokšenneva) (prolative), мокшеннеса (mokšennesa) (inessive).[1][2] Only these attested forms are shown in the declension section above, the paradigm appears to be identical to that of the possessive pronoun монь (monʹ) (which is also a genitive morphologically).
