The Ingush language is a Northeast Caucasian language spoken by about 500,000 people in Ingushetia, a republic in the North Caucasus region of Russia. It is written using the Cyrillic alphabet.
The Ingush language is related to the Chechen language, and the two are sometimes considered to be dialects of a single language. However, there are significant differences between the two, including in their vocabularies, pronunciation, and grammar.
The Ingush language is considered to be endangered, as its use is declining in favor of Russian. However, efforts are being made to revive the language, including through education and the use of mass media.
