Karata is a member of the Avar-Andic branch of Northeast Caucasian languages. It is spoken in Akhvakh and Khazavyurt districts of southern Dagestan in the south of Russian Federation. In 2010 there were about 260 speakers of Karata.
There are two dialects, Karata proper (Karatin) and Tokita (Tokitin), which are quite different from each other.
Karata is rarely written, and speakers of Karata generally write in Avar or Russian.
