Description : In this project, our aim is to document two languages belonging to the Dargi subbranch of the North-East Caucasian language family – Shiri and Sanzhi. Both languages are now highly endangered due to a number of social and political processes in the last century. They have been originally spoken in eponymous villages, but Sanzhi is now abandoned, and Shiri is inhabited by no more than 10 households, only half of which are locals. Today, most speakers of both languages are dispersed among multilingual lowland communities. This leads to an almost complete lack of language proficiency among the younger generation, and the loss of traditional cultural identity.
