Description - Chechen-English and English-Chechen Dictionary by Johanna Nichols
The Chechen language has about 1,200,000 speakers, and along with Ingush is one of the largest indigenous languages of the northern Caucasus. The Russian-Chechen wars have created refugee and immigrant populations in Russia and Europe, and these populations are anxious to maintain the younger generations' fluency in Chechen and uphold ethnic and linguistic consciousness among expatriate Chechens worldwide. This bilingual dictionary has approximately 5000 Chechen words and about 5000 English words. The Chechen words are cited in both current Cyrillic orthography and the Latin system. Entries have full grammatical information and glossaries include alternatives and comments so as to convey the full meanings of words as opposed to simply translating them.
