The Global Importance of Understanding Chechen in Chechnya
Chechen is the main language spoken in the Republic of Chechnya and is linguistically the member of the Nakh family, together with Ingush and Bats. The Chechen Republic is located in the Northern Caucasus Mountains, in the Southern Federal District of Russia. The area is still in heavy political strife with its neighboring republics, since 1990, the Chechen Republic has had many legal, military, and civil conflicts involving separatist movements and pro-Russian authorities. Today, Chechnya is a relatively stable federal republic, although there is still some separatist movement activity. The area harbors various rebel groups within Chechnya fighting the Russians, each with different political and ideological motivations. Chechnya is certainly on the forefront of global political strife and, therefore, pertinent to understand the language and culture involving communication between Chechnya and the western world. American Language Services provides excellent Chechen translators to accurately translate anything you may need.
Chechen Dialect and Grammar
There are a number of Chechen dialects; over ten different dialects make up the Chechen language. Likewise, the use of grammar in Chechen is equally complex: Chechen nouns belong to one of several genders or classes (6), each with a specific prefix with which the verb or an accompanying adjective agrees. However, Chechen is not a pro-drop language: subject pronouns are always used in simple sentences and the verb does not agree with the subject or object’s person or number, having only tense forms and participles. Among these are an optative and an antipassive. Some verbs, however, do not take these prefixes.
The Chechen Alphabet
Numerous inscriptions in the Georgian alphabet are found in mountainous Chechnya, but they are not necessarily in Chechen. Later the Arabic alphabet was introduced for Chechen, along with Islam. It was first reformed during the reign of Imam Shamil and then in 1910, 1920 and 1922. At the same time, the alphabet devised by Peter von Uslar, consisting of Cyrillic, Latin, and Georgian letters, was used for academic purposes. In 1911 it too was reformed but never gained popularity among the Chechens themselves.
