  • Country: Khanty Mansi Yugra

Ма̄нь Хо̄нкве — in Mansi language.

The Mansi languages, also previously called Vogul, are spoken by the Mansi people in Russia along the Ob River and its tributaries, in the Khanty–Mansi-Yugra Autonomous Okrug, and Sverdlovsk Oblast. Traditionally considered a single language, they constitute a branch of the Uralic languages, often considered most closely related to the neighbouring Khanty languages and then to Hungarian. According to the 2010 census, there were only 940 Mansi-speaking people in Russia out of an ethnic population of 12,000.

The base dialect of the Mansi literary language is the Sosva dialect, a representative of the northern language. Fixed word order is typical in Mansi. Adverbials and participles play an important role in sentence construction.
