Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Caucasian Albanian, aka Aghwan or Old Udi, is an extinct member of the Caucasian language family. It was spoken in Caucasian Albania, which stretched from current day south Dagestan to Azerbaijan. It is thought to be an early linguistic predecessor to the endangered North Caucasian Udi language. Until 1996, little had been known about the language associated with the Caucasian Albanian alphabet. After the involvement of linguists Jost Gippert and Wolfgang Schulze and the purchase of relevant equipment with MuSIS installed on it it was possible to completely read the Caucasian Albanian texts. A list of Caucasian Albanian month names, which survived in a number of medieval manuscripts, gave one of the clues to the language.
