Kryts (Kryc) is a Samur language of the Northeast Caucasian language family spoken in parts of the Quba Rayon of Azerbaijan by 6,000 people in 1975.[3] Its dialects are Kryts, Jek, Khaput, Yergyudzh, and Alyk, which are all quite distinct and could be considered separate languages.[3]

Kryts is endangered[4][5], classified as "severely endangered" by UNESCO's Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger.[6]
