The book contains two main parts. In the first part (Chapter 2),
previous studies of the prosody of Erzya are surveyed. The chapter
focuses on earlier acoustic analyses of Erzya prosodic features,
treatments of Erzya phonology, and diachronic and typological studies
of Mordvin in general and Erzya in particular. The objective of this
review is to bring forward research questions relevant to solving the

concentrates on the role of quantity and stress in the Erzya prosodic
system. The duration of sounds, the acoustical structure of vowels,
and the fundamental frequency are measured in a corpus of test
