The Tsezic languages (also called Didoic languages) form one of the seven main branches of Northeast Caucasian language family. It branches into Tsez–Hinukh and Bezhta–Hunzib–Khwarshi, according to the latest research.[2] They were formerly classified geographically into East Tsezic (Hinukh, and Bezhta) and West Tsezic (Tsez, Khwarshi, and Hunzib).[citation needed] The Avar language serves as the literary language for speakers of Tsezic languages.
