 The website <>
represents an endeavor to make the Mari language, a Finno-Ugric minority
language native to the Russian Federation, accessible to an international
audience, and to provide native speakers of the language with much-needed
 By giving enthusiasts all over the world free and unlimited access to
English-language materials needed to learn the language, the projects┬╣
participants (at the University of Vienna and in the Russian Federation)
hope to counteract the linguistic isolation of the Mari language, and hope
to take a significant step in raising the language┬╣s status, both among
native speakers and abroad.
 At the project presentation, we will illustrate what resources currently
are available to Finno-Ugric minority languages and their speakers/students,
what materials would be desired, and what steps we are currently taking to
bridge this gap for this specific language.
 The program consists of three small presentations on this subject matter,
followed by a chance to discuss our approach and its applicability to other
minority languages over a small buffet.
 Admission is free. All are welcome.
