Abstract

[Extract] Avar (ISO 639-3ava) is one of the larger Nakh-Daghestanian (East Caucasian) languages. The number of Avar speakers can be estimated at around 800,000.¹ Traditionally, Avars live in the central and western parts of Daghestan, and there are also Avar communities in Georgia and in northern Azerbaijan. In the last 150 years many Avars have migrated to Turkey² and to various parts of Russia.
