Archi is a Northeast Caucasian language with about 1,000 speakers in the village of
Archi in the Dagestan in Russia. It is thought to related to Avar and Lak,
although its exact relationship to these languages and others has not been
established as yet.
Until recently Archi was unwritten, except in some scholarly publications,
and a version of the Latin alphabet was used. In 2006 a Cyrillic-based orthography
based on the Avar Cyrillic alphabet was developed and used in the Archi-Russian-English
Dictionary by the Surrey Morphological Group.
