Pontic Greek is known for the preservation of several properties of Medieval Greek. The available publications and resources about this dialect relate to the varieties spoken in Turkey or by Pontic Greek speakers in Greece. The Pontic Greek in Georgia, which is used within a different language situation and is in contact with new languages, has been less systematically investigated.
Caucasian Urum is a little documented and severely endangered variety of Anatolian Turkish, spoken by a minority of ethnic Greeks in the Small Caucasus in Georgia.
