Chechen love poem
Куьзган чохь хьан сурт гучу хенахь-
Иза сан уггаре хаз стихотворени ю!
Хьо сих цалахь иза д1а ер ю!

Iza san uggare xaz stixotvoreni yu!
Ẋo six calaẋ iza d1a er yu!
Iza san t1eẋar lera "sun ẋo vez du"!!!

A nice girl & her language Chechen
Chechen love poem (Akkin, Ploskost, Melkhin, Itumkala, Cheberloi, Aux, Nokhchiin, Nokchiin Muott, Galancho, Nokhchi, Kistin, Shatoi, Autonym : Нохчийн мотт (Noxchiin mott)), translated by Aza, a nice girl from Grozny.
I like this translation, it is part of my favorites, because I find there a very personal feeling of childhood, as with some others. But I miss a voice, her voice, the voice of the woman she would have been if she had been Chechen ... one day A Chechen will recognize herself and will send to me.
Chechen is a language of the Nakh group of Nakho-Dagestanian languages (North-East Caucasus group), a very old language family, indigenous of Caucasus, and of which we do not know any external relations.
Chechen is as close to Ingush as two Romance languages can be to each other. These two languages are considered to share 84% of basic vocabulary, the two are mutually understandable. It is a little more distant from batsbi (tsova-tush) from Georgia, and even more from Dagestan languages such as Dargi, Lezghien, Lak and Avar (25 to 30% of related vocabulary).
For its external influences, let us quote Persian, Arabic and of course the surrounding languages. Chechens inhabit the central part of the North Caucasus, and Chechen is the language of the majority of them ... there are 1 million Chechen speakers in Chechnya.
Chechen has several dialects, a dozen, that of Grozny defining the standard and the written language. This written language, in turn used different alphabets (Arabic, Latin, Cyrillic and today an enriched Latin alphabet.
The Chechens (autonym: Noxçiin, Noxchii, Nokhtcho, Nokhtchiin), derive their name "Chechen" from the first of their cities that the Russians met, the city of Cheechan (Chechen-Aul).
The largest group in number is the Nakhtchio (Nakhutchuo), a name they give themselves. The Ossetians call them "Tstatsan", the Georgians call them "Kisthi", and for the Circassians they are "Schesshen".
In number they represent the largest group in the North Caucasus. Originally Chechens and Ingush were only one people (the Vainakhs), which with the Bats of Georgia, people with whom they present common cultural and linguistic traits, are Nakhs. Their ancestors were the Dzourdzouks, themselves descendants of the Hurrians, who themselves had the Choumeres as ancestors.
The Chechens are part of the Vainakhs (Veynakh) group, which the ancestors of the Ossetians (the Alans) pushed to take refuge in the mountains.
After coming under the control of the Kabards, they had to gradually cede to neighboring powers (Persians, Ottomans and Russians), and as the other peoples of the region were Islamized, an Islam that they spread even in Ingushetia, which remained Christian until the 18th century.
