Lezgian dialects 21 alects, e. g. the Fij dialect (Mejlanova 1964:386-394, Abdul2amalov 1965), the Ceper (DZaba) dialect (Ganieva 1972a, b, 1981, 1983, 1985), the Quruä dialect (Mejlanova 1964:395-399), the Gilig dialect (Mejlanova 1964:353-358), and the Gelxen dialect (Mejlanova 1964:358-365). 2. 1. Phonology. The vowel inventory: Besides the vowels of the standard language, several dialects (especially of the Axceh dialect group) have the high back unrounded vowel /i/.

G. ses 'sound'). 2. g. g. ela 'question'). 3. g. jad 'water', stxajar 'brothers') and as ä after a consonant. There is only one Lezgian word where /ja/ occurs after a consonant: <ΛΥΙ»ΗΙ>Λ> dünja 'world' (this word is also unique in that it is the only non-Russian word where is used, omitted in the transliteration here). 4.
