The proposed post-doctoral project will be conducted under the supervision of Dr Martin Ehala, a main participant of the large scale research project “Morphosyntactic structure and development of Estonian” Dr. Ehala’s main research activities are focused on the ethnolinguistic vitality of linguistic minorities and developing the theory of ethnolinguistic vitality. The proposed postdoctoral research is to be an integral part of his new project “The ethnolinguistic vitality of Finno-Ugric people in the Russian Federation”. The main focus of the current post-doctoral project will be on the dynamics of the ethnolinguistic vitality of the Mari people, more precisely on the processes and actions in the cultural and ethnic field that have been aimed to secure the sustainability of the Mari language and ethnicity in a more distant as well as recent history; the consequences and drawbacks of these attempts; and possibilities for further developments. A quantitative survey of ethnolinguistic vitality of Mari is planned, accompanied with qualitative research on revitalization discourses and description of the modern Mari language situation, its lexical processes and language planning activities as one of the central components of sustainability of Mari. The project is important for planning the Mari language development and sustainability
