The members of the Finno-Ugric (or Uralic) language family are: Baltic-Finnic group: Finnish, Estonian, Karelian, Ludic/Ludian, Veps/Vepsian, Ingrian, Livonian and Votic/Votian; Sami (Lapp): a group of dialects or closely related languages; Mari (Cheremis); Mordvin: Erzya and Moksha; Permic/Permian group: Komi (Zyryan), Permyak and Udmurt (Votyak); Ugric group: Hungarian, Khanty (Ostyak) and Mansi (Vogul); Samoyedic group: Nenets (Yurak), Enets (Yenisey Samoyed), Nganasan (Tavgy) and Selkup (Ostyak Samoyed). The Samoyedic group is traditionally classified as a separate language family constituting the Uralic group together with Finno-Ugric languages. However, many linguists now use the terms "Finno-Ugric" and "Uralic" as synonyms, and this is also the naming convention used in the ODP.
