Tsugni Dargwa is a central dialect, which makes it mutually comprehensible with most of the other Dargi languages, with the exception of kubachi. It presents a great many original traits.

Kaytag Dargwa is spoken in the Kaytag region of Dagestan, whose administrative centre is Madzhalis. It is not mutually comprehensible with the other Dargi languages, the most thoroughly studied of which are Akusha Dargi, which forms the basis of the literary language, and Kubachi. The two collections re-edited here represent one Upper Kaytag variety, spoken in the village of Shilagi (U. Hasanova), and one Lower Kaytag variety, spoken in the village of Dzhavghat (Kh. Habibova).
