Dear friends, colleagues, readers, and students,

Our second (of four) scheduled publications this year is now ready to be 
downloaded: “Reading Hill Mari through Meadow Mari”. This 400-page book 
introduces the second literary standard of Mari (used by less than 10% 
of Maris, but nonetheless the working language of a vibrant culture and 
literature) to students and scholars already acquainted with Meadow 
Mari, the dominant literary standard of Mari that is now quite 
accessible via various materials we have published on our website, 

Our new book cannot aspire to be a full-fledged reference grammar or a 
textbook of Hill Mari optimized for the needs of beginners wishing to 
actively learn Hill Mari, but does offer a comprehensive contrastive 
overview of the phonology and morphology of the two literary standards 
of Mari. This enables users to employ their knowledge of Meadow Mari to 
access texts written in Hill Mari, by making them aware of the 
systematic differences between the two literary norms. The book also 
contains four trilingual (Hill Mari, Meadow Mari, English) reading texts 
that allow students to practice their newly acquired skills and a 
comprehensive trilingual glossary covering the vocabulary used in the book.

This publication was compiled in cooperation with Nadezhda Krasnova, a 
linguist and native speaker of Hill Mari at Mari State University in 
Yoshkar-Ola, and Tatiana Yefremova, a linguist and native speaker of 
Meadow Mari at ELTE in Budapest. Its creation was made possible thanks 
to a grant by the Kone Foundation (www.koneensaatio.fi/en/). Our 
forthcoming Hill Mari lexicon, funded by the same grant, will continue 
making Hill Mari more accessible to the outside world.
