Komi-Yazva language

The Komi-Yazva language (Коми-Ёдз кыл, Komi-Yodz kyl) is spoken mostly in Krasnovishersky District of Perm Krai in Russia, in the basin of the Yazva (Yodz) River. It is a Permic language closely related to Komi-Zyrian and Permyak. It has no official status.

About two thousand speakers densely live in Krasnovishersky District.

Availability of the particular vowels together with features of phonetics and stress system lead Finnish linguist Arvid Genetz in 1889 to consider Komi-Yodzyak as a separate dialect. Later, this decision was confirmed by the famous Finno-Ugricist Lytkin, who studied the Komi-Yodzyak idiom in depth from 1949 until 1953.


The first Komi-Yazva primer was printed in 2003. Its author was the teacher of the Parshavskaya school A. L. Parshakova. This book also became the first one ever printed in Komi-Yazva language.
