Chechen is an official language of Chechnya and a member of the Northeast Caucasian language family. Although it has only just over 1 million speakers, it has over ten dialects. Chechen is listed as “Vulnerable” in UNESCO’s list of World’s Languages in Danger.
The Chechen language has been written with several scripts, with Arabic script (right-to-left) in the early 20th century, then Latin from 1925 onwards, followed by the Cyrillic alphabet until 1992. A Chechen Latin script was then introduced, then abolished and Chechens have now reverted back to the Cyrillic script.
