Xinalug language is a language isolate within the NorthEast Caucasian language family spoken only in one village of the high mountains of Azerbaijan. Although there are some materials available on this language, the sources are limited. It is the goal of this documentation project to create a descriptive grammar and dictionary of Xinalug language in English. It is also our intent to document the ancient traditions and history of this unique population before it is too late.

Tamrika Khvtisiashvili is a Ph.D. candidate in Descriptive Linguistics at the University of Utah, U.S. Her dissertation will be based on the grammar of Xinalug language that she intends to finish within the next 3 years. She loves the Caucasus and its cultural/linguistic diversity, thus she has chosen it to be her goal to make U.S. more aware and educated about this region, through her own work and work of her colleagues.
