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.
