Northern Talyshi

The Northern dialect of Talyshi is spoken in the far southeast of Azerbaijan and across the border in the Ardabil and Gilan provinces of northwestern Iran. It is not mutually intelligible with the other Talyshi dialects, spoken further south along the Caspian littoral. The folk tales treated here, compiled by Әboszodә (2004) from several oral and written sources in Azerbaijan, have been transliterated, glossed and translated by S. Kaye.

Eastern Armenian

Eastern Armenian is the official language of the Republic of Armenia. The texts presented here, transliterated, glossed and translated by G. Authier and R. Meyer, have been selected because parallel versions exist in other languages treated by the project. The majority of these texts were collected in the border region of Lorri by Hovhannes Tumanyan (1869-1923).

Muslim Tat

Muslim Tat is closely related to Jewish Tat (also known as Juhuri), the language of the Mountain Jews, described by Authier (2012). There exist many dialects of Muslim Tat, mostly spoken in Azerbaijan, some of which were documented by Grünberg (1963). In the present project Nayiba Mammadova is documenting her own variety, from Surakhani in the Absheron Peninsula, and Murad Suleymanov is documenting varieties of the Upper Shirvan dialect spoken in the regions of Shamakhi and Ismailli. Meanwhile Authier has glossed and retranscribed in the Latin alphabet the Qonaqkent dialect texts published by M. Haciyev in 1995.
