Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bagvalal language is an Avar-Andic language spoken by the Bagvalals in southwestern Dagestan, Russia, along the right bank of the river Andi-Koisu and the surrounding hills, near the Georgian border. It is fairly similar to Tindi, its closest relative. There were about 6,500 people who speak Bagvalal in the survey by Koryakov in 2006. The tradition and culture of the Bagvalal people is very similar to that of the Avar people, due to their common history within the Avar Khanate. Bagvalal has three dialects which are named after the names of the villages in which they are spoken in. Only the Tlisi dialect has been studied to a certain significance, because of its similarities to the Tindi language.show more
