Godoberi (also spelled Ghodoberi) is an Andic language of the Northeast Caucasian language family spoken by the Godoberi in southwestern Dagestan, Russia. It is closely related to Botlikh.It is spoken by approximately 130 people.[1]


Godoberi, like virtually all Caucasian languages, contains a number of loan words from Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, as well as Avar and Russian; these last two have had a particularly strong influence in recent years.[3]
