The project aimed at the description of Hinuq (Nakh-Daghestanian). The description included the phonology, morphology and syntax of Hinuq as well as a couple of texts and a short dictionary.
Hinuq is the smallest of the five Tsezic languages spoken in south Russia in the Caucasus, by about 500 speakers. It belongs to the Nakh-Daghestanian language family. The speakers of this language live mainly in one small village in the Daghestanian mountains near to the Georgian border. Although they acquire Hinuq as their first language, Russian is becoming more and more dominant since Russian is used in formal schooling, television, and public life in general.
