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.
