Tsez is a Northeast Caucasian language spoken by about 7,000 people in the Tsunta district of southern and western Dagestan in Russia. The name Tsez, which is used for both the language and the people who speak it, comes from the Tsez word for eagle. In Georgian, the Tsez language is known as დიდო (dido).
When Tsez is written, which is not very often, it is usually written with Cyrillic-based spelling based on Avar. Tsez is not taught in schools, but Avar and Russian are used instead.
