Usage notes

edit

Poljakov does not indicate locative forms (тяса, тяста (ťasa , ťasta)) in the declension example given by him,[2] they correspond to Moksha terms for "here" and "from here." The reason might be that these forms could more appropriately be classified as adverbs. An alternative form of the plural (нят (ńat)) is ня (ńa).
