Hunzib (гьонкьос мыц)

Hunzib is a Northeast Caucasian language spoken in southwestern Dagestan in the Russian Federation by about 1,840 people, particularly in the Tsunta and Kizilyurt districts of Dagestan and in two villages across the border in Georgia.

Hunzib is closely related to Bezhta and Khwarshi, and less closely related to Tsez and Hinukh, and contains loanwords from Avar, Georgian, Turkish, Arabic and Russian.

Hunzib has no official status, is not taught in schools, and is rarely written. Hunzib speakers are educated in Avar for the first five years of their schooling, and in Russian thereafter.
