# Summary
UD Erzya is the original annotation (CoNLL-U) for texts in the Erzya language,
it originally consists of a sample from a number of fiction authors writing originals in Erzya.
# Introduction
UD Erzya is the original annotation (CoNLL-U) for texts in the Erzya language. Texts will date back to the 1880s
# Acknowledgements
The original annotation has been performed by Jack Rueter at the University of Helsinki using morphological tools
facilitated at the Norwegian Arctic University in Tromsø and with continuous consultation from Francis Tyers.
The idea and funding for the first three months of the project came from Anssi Yli-Jyrä, Research Fellow at
the Academy of Finland (dec. No 270354 - A Usable Finite-State Model for Adequate
Syntactic Complexity), who made it possible to work with Erzya UD.
Without the Erzya writers themselves, we would be no where…
Annotation work is simultaneous to finite-state transducer development by Olga Erina and Jack Rueter in the [GiellaLT]( infrastucture, which also works with Constraint Grammar disambiguation of the morphological analysis.

In release 2.7 example sentences used in the Erzya-language grammar *Эрзянь кель, синтакс* (2011) were included. These sentences are marked with sent_id-s that contain the components `EKS:2011:page:n-th sentence:original author`. It is hoped that the inclusion of these sentences will help cover various grammatical phenomena in Erzya syntax. When refering to these sentences, we advise you also cite the original source:
