The history of Uralic languages and peoples numbers thousands years. The process of modern Finnish, Ugric and Samoyedic nations’ formation was rather hard. The former name of a Uralic language family was Finno-Ugric or Ugro-Finnic family. Later it was changed to Uralic as far as the belongings to the family of Samoyedic languages was revealed and proved. A Uralic language family is divided into the Ugric branch which includes Hungarian, Khanty and Mansi languages (latter two are combined by the general name “Ob-Ugric languages”), the Finno-Permian branch, which combines Permian languages (Komi, Komi-Permian and Udmurt), Volgian languages ( Mari and Mordvinian), Baltic-Finnic language group (Karelian, Finnic, Estonian languages and also the languages of Veps, Votes, Ingria, Livonians), Sami and Samoyedic languages, inside which we can single out a northern branch (Nganasan, Nenets, Enets languages) and a southern branch (Selkup).
