Abstract

[Extract] THE Nakh-Daghestanian (or East Caucasian) language family is the largest and the most diverse of the three autochthonous language families in the Caucasus, the other two being West Caucasian (or Abkhaz-Adyghe) and Kartvelian (or South Caucasian). 1he more than forty Nakh-Daghestanian languages are spoken in the southern parts of Russia, in northern Azerbaijan and in a few speech communities are found in Georgia (Map 23.1). 1he family can be divided into several sub-branches: Nakh (Chechen, Ingush, Tsova-Tush), A var-Andie (Avar, Andi, Godoberi, Bagvalal, and more), Ts ezic (Tsez, Hinuq, Khwarshi, Hunzib, and Bezhta), Lezgic (Lezgian, Agul, Tsakhur, Tabasaran, Kryz, Rutul, Budukh, Archi, and Udi), Khinalugh (sometimes grouped together with Lezgic), Dargi (traditionally considered to be one language, but consisting of several varieties that are mutually incomprehensible), and Lak (sometimes grouped together with Dargi).
