Kubachi (alternatively Kubachin) is a language from the Dargin dialect continuum spoken in Dagestan, Russia. It is often considered a divergent dialect of Dargwa. The Ethnologue lists it under the dialects of Dargwa, but recognizes that it may be a separate language.[1]

  • The glottal stop transcribed here is named rather ambiguously a "glottalic laryngeal" by both sources.
  • Also note that the source names the epiglottal series ″pharyngeal″ indiscriminately in all the tables, also when it includes a plosive and thus clearly isn't a true pharyngeal.
