This paper deals with complementation in the Nakh-Daghestanian language Hinuq. It additionally offers a short overview of complementation types in other languages of the same family. The focus is on the semantics, but wherever neces-sary a syntactic analysis will be provided. All Hinuq examples appearing in this paper have been collected by the author during fieldwork in Daghestan. Hinuq examples are not especially marked as such. For all examples from other Nakh-Daghestanian languages the sources are indicated together with the example sentences. The structure of the paper is as follows: Section 2 provides an introduction to Hinuq grammar and its place within the Nakh-Daghestanian language family. In Section 3 I give a short introduction to all Hinuq complementizers and complementation types. In the subsequent Sections 4–6 the major complementation strategies are analyzed in detail. Section 7 is a short summary. Sections 8 and 9 deal with semantic choices in complementation and combinations of complementation types. Section 10 contains a synopsis of complement constructions built with other than purely verbal matrix predicates. In Section 11 the functions of complementizers outside of complement constructions are discussed. Section 12 presents an overview of complementation types and complementizers in Nakh-Daghestanian languages, and Section 13 contains the conclusion
