Encyclopedia > Lezgin

Lezgian is a loose and imprecise term used to refer to a subgroup of the Northeast Caucasian languages spoken in Dagestan by the Lezgian tribes, consisting of ten dialects called the Lezgi language.

The term Lezgian still strikes a chord in the hearts of most Russians for their fame in resisting Russian conquest for more than half of the 19th century. The Lezgins live mainly in southern Dagestan and northern Azerbaijan. They have been pushing for an autonomous republic of their own since the 1990s.
