Archi (Аршаттен чӀат)

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.

Sample text (Demons come to Ali Ajshat)

Как к Али-Айшат пришли черти. Жила-была Али-Айшат, и было у нее два сына, один Абдул Муталиб, другой Абдул Кагир. Они были очень богатые люди. Поле у нее засеивалось тридцатью мерами зерна. Обработать его было трудно, так как помощников у них не было. Пошла Али-Айшат со своими сыновьями вниз по реке на жатву.
