About two thousand speakers densely live in Krasnovishersky District.

Komi-Yazva is to the east (in darkblue)


Availability[clarification needed] of the particular vowels together with features of phonetics and stress system led Finnish linguist Arvid Genetz in 1889 to consider Komi-Yodzyak as a separate dialect.[citation needed] Later, this decision was confirmed by the famous Finno-Ugricist Vasily Lytkin, who studied the Komi-Yodzyak idiom in depth from 1949 until 1953.[citation needed]


The first Komi-Yazva primer was printed in 2003. Its author was the teacher of the Parshavskaya school A. L. Parshakova. This book also became the first one ever printed in Komi-Yazva language.
