Caucasus[edit]

Iran is not a Caucasian nation, the Caucasus ends at the border with Iran.Azerbaijani 21:49, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

I took Iran out, because as far as I know, no part of Iran is in the Caucasus. The border with Iran marks the end of the Caucasus and the beginning of the Iranian plateau (relatively ofcourse).Azerbaijani 21:24, 2 June 2007 (UTC)


Anyone who considers Greece, the Caucasus or anything in that region European, seriously needs to actually live in these places to appreciate their profound ignorance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.254.81.209 (talk) 14:05, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Greece not European? What the heck do you mean by that? It was the Greeks who came up with the concept of Europe in the first place! Wardog (talk) 15:41, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Europe is an invented continent. It's really just part of the larger Eurasian land mass. But based on conventional definitions Greece is clearly European. In fact, it was the Greeks who invented the idea of Europe as a separate continent. They considered themselves Europeans back then and still do today. So by all accounts, they are more "European" than anyone else. They symbolize the origins of the concept of Europe. Now do tell us how Greece is not European and how one can realize this by living there? What, just because it has some cultural differences than other parts of Europe? Do you think all European cultures are the same? Europe is not a monolith. Of course there is going to be differences between regions. It's a highly diverse and fragmented place. Is France like Latvia? Is Ireland like Romania? Is Finland like Italy? By your logic Hindu India is not part of "Asia" because it doesn't adhere to the Islamic and Confucian traditions that dominate the continent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheyCallMeTheEditor (talkcontribs) 22:31, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Ethno-Linguistic groups in the Caucasus region- that map is totally wrong. It shows in eastern Turkey language is Kurdish. But in East Turkey there are 3 million Kurdish, and 25 million Turkish. So, what is it? just a biased map... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.228.61.2 (talk) 12:49, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Image[edit]

A more recent map should be used here to show current countries BigEyedFish (talk) 07:46, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree with the proposal and think this image is suitable. As caucasus is a geographical region this picture is more suitable for the article that the other images on the wikicommons which are political maps mostly.
Geographical map of Caucasus with national borders shown
-ArazZeynilitalkcontrib19:21, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

To the author - since when Abkhazia became southern Russia and is disputed? It's de facto independent, but for the entire world, it's still part of Georgia.

definition not correct[edit]

"The Caucasus or Caucasia is a region in Eurasia bordered on the north by Russia, on the southwest by Turkey, on the west by the Black Sea, on the east by the Caspian Sea, and on the south by Iran." I think the defintion is not correct. The region is not bordered with Turkey's and Russia's borders as it is bordered with Black Sea, Caspian and Iran. So a reader may get a meaning that Caucasia ends with border of Russia and Turkey, which is not correct part of these countries are included in Caucasian region. We should rephrase the first definition sentence.-ArazZeynilitalkcontrib19:43, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Image addition?[edit]

An image of this particular region would be swell... not just maps. - tbone (talk) 14:43, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

You should remove the biblical references. The human genome project proves where modern man originated from over almost 200,000 years ago. From Adam to Noah there was only a thousand years. Anyone living in the Caucus region would have been far removed from the geneology of Noah by at least 190,000 years. Even the ability of humans to speak and spread oral history is relatively new, and the ability to write is even newer. The Garden of Eden was located at the convergence of three rivers near southern Iraq, which is where the Sumarian civilization first began to write. The migration from there to the Caucasus region would have taken thousands of years. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.110.172.227 (talk) 06:58, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Caucasian[edit]

I accidentally posted the following question in South Caucasus' talk page, but meant to have it here:
"Does this article need to address whether or not South Caucasus has any link at all, direct or indirect, to the nationality known as "Caucasian"? (I confess that I have no idea.) Thanks." 98.202.38.225 (talk) 15:19, 31 May 2008 (UTC) There's no such a thing as nationality Caucasian. Maybe you meant race? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mchedela (talkcontribs) 07:05, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Demographics and ethno-linguistic families[edit]

I'm perplexed how the article jumps from the Georgians to the Chechens in terms of largest ethnolinguistic groups. I think you missed the Armenians and the Azeris. I suggest a little research an re-writing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.205.53.50 (talk) 01:26, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

The article says "The largest peoples of the Caucasian language family..." — Armenian and Azeri don't belong to the Caucasian languages. Of course, there's no such thing as "one Caucasian language family", but it's very probable that it refers to people with languages indigenous to the Caucasus region. — N-true (talk) 12:59, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Although, Armenian is classified as a Indo-European language and Azeri, Turkic, it's still misleading not to discuss them when the page is a discussion of the whole territory of the Caucasus. I quickly found this link for info, but there may be others: http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Caucasian-languages —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.205.53.50 (talk) 15:24, 8 August 2008 (UTC)


Etymology[edit]

Any idea what the etymology of the word Caucasia or Caucasus is? I couldn't find anything in dictionaries. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.106.83.224 (talk) 05:13, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi there this part of the article has some syntax issues both in English as well as Persian (where you read kuhkāf in stead of kāfkuh). Wikijamin (talk) 00:15, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

And what is this malarky? "Etymology The word Caucasus derives from Caucas, the ancestor of the North Caucasians.[2] He was a son of Togarmah, grandson of Biblical Noah's third son Japheth. According to Leonti Mroveli after the fall of the Tower of Babel and the division of humanity into different languages, Togarmah settled with his sons: Kartlos, Haik (Georgian:ჰაოს, Haos), Movakos, Lekos (Lak people), Heros (Kindgom of Hereti), Kavkas, and Egros (Kingdom of Egrisi) between two inaccessible mountains, presumably Mount Ararat and Mount Elbrus." Come on religion based hearsay as an etymology?

---I find the above comment funny. Seriously though, the statement of the name descended from a folkloric person should not be presented as a cold hard fact unless there is other evidence to support it. I am surprised this got by. Few English speaking people probably read about the Caucasus. I read a little Russian, but not much. It looks like the Etymology section of the Russian wiki page mentions Herodotus. 74.101.163.144 (talk) 22:11, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Etymonline says: "Caucasus: mountain range between Europe and the Middle East, from Gk. kaukhasis, said by Pliny ("Natural History," book six, chap. XVII) to be from a Scythian word similar to kroy-khasis, lit. "(the mountain) ice-shining, white with snow." But possibly from a Pelasgian root *kau- meaning "mountain."[1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.91.190.226 (talk) 19:11, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East[edit]

It surely isn't between these places. It must surely be in one, some or all of them. Also, the middle east is in Asia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.140.57.113 (talk) 11:43, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Map[edit]

Map substituted. It's not exactly the best map, but is better than anything else available on Wikimedia Commons. Skinsmoke (talk) 23:13, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Partially recognised states[edit]

South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Nagomo Karabakh are not independent states and should not be listed as such at the beginning of the article. I realise they've been put in italics to indicate that they are partially recognised, but they should also be listed under the countries they officially belong to. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.102.43.72 (talk) 23:03, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

They're all functionally independent. It makes more sense to put them as italicised states than italicised autonomous regions, especially as both Nagorno-Karabakh and South Ossetia don't at all match administrative divisions of their claimant. CMD (talk) 17:06, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

It doesn't matter if you consider them to be functionally independent. These areas are officially part of Georgia and Azerbaijan and this is not acknowledged in the list. It's fine to mention that they are partially recognised as independent states but to have no mention of the countries these places officially belong to is ridiculous. 86.17.19.215 (talk) 09:46, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Good point. We should add that to the note at the bottom. CMD (talk) 10:15, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

The note at the bottom doesn't tell us which countries these areas officially belong to. The only sensible (and neat) way to include all the information is to list the areas under their respective countries and mention in the footnote that they are partially recognised as independent. There is also an NPOV issue in listing unrecognised countries as sovereign states in the main list and only mentioning their disputed status in a footnote. It should be the other way round. The official information should be in the main list and the unofficial recognition should be mentioned in the footnote. Seems pretty obvious that the official info. should take precedence. 86.17.19.215 (talk) 11:45, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Hence "we should add". I've now done this. Official information is not more neutral than unofficial information, and actually has far more reason to hold a POV. CMD (talk) 17:23, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Not in an encyclopaedia. I still think it's dumb (and far less neutral) to have unrecognised states listed as sovereign nations with their true status only mentioned in a footnote, but I don't care sufficiently to change it.

86.17.19.215 (talk) 16:47, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Abkhazia, Karabakh[edit]

Abkhazia and karabakh is recognized by UN, EU Nato and by 99% of world government as parts of Georgia and Azerbaijan. excluding Russia nauru vanautu tuvalu and venezuela. Chipmunksdavis u are provoking separatism and radicalism, if karabakh is listed as country than Chechnya must be listed as country too, Ingushetia, Dagestan Circassia Kabardia must be listed as countries too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.73.210.231 (talkcontribs)

Chechnya, Ingushetia, etc. have no strong de facto control over their territories. More information can be found at sovereignty and list of states with limited recognition. CMD (talk) 15:38, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Chimpunkdavis is vandal person. Abkhazia and Karabakh are official territories of Azerbaijan and Georgia.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.73.208.159 (talkcontribs)

For crying out loud, now Nagomo Karabakh is under azerbaijan but the georgian ones are still listed as independent. So now it's both wrong an inconsistent. It really shouldn't be this hard to compile a list of countries. I'm fixing it to be in accordance with official statuses and mentioning the partial recognition in the footnote. Hopefully that will be the end of this. 86.17.19.215 (talk) 03:06, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

That was another IP. The official status of NKR and South Ossetia according to Azerbaijan and Georgia is that they don't even exist as administrative entities, despite what our table would imply. The current footnote even notes which countries the breakaway states are considered to be part of. Wikipedia doesn't just follow official positions. See WP:Official name as an example. CMD (talk) 11:43, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

National borders and statuses are arbitrary man made concepts. There is no metaphysically true position here. Official international recognition is the only standard we have to work from. I have the united nations and 99% of the world on my side. On your side you have recognition from a handful of nations, some of which are not even recognised themselves. Give me one good reason why your version of events should take precedence over the official version. 86.17.19.215 (talk) 23:10, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

It's not my version of events, it's the reality on the ground. You don't need a metaphysical position to say that Georgia has absolutely no control in Sukhumi, or Azerbaijan in Stepanakert. As much as the Nagorno-Karabakh border may be a man made concept, it's also a bloody long trench in the ground. CMD (talk) 00:18, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Yout perception of the situation on the ground is not an objective standard. This is an article about a geopolitical area. The question is whether these places are independent sovereign nations; not whether Tbilisi has real control over them. There's more to being an independent sovereign nation than having control.86.17.19.215 (talk) 00:39, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

It's not my perception of the situation, it is the actual situation, which is pretty objective, as far as standards go. Please see the Declarative theory of statehood. There's more than one way to define a state. The dispute over their statehood is indicated by the italics, and by the footnote. CMD (talk) 11:17, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

And the dispute over their statehood is mentioned in my version in the footnote. A footnote is where it belongs. The fact that abkhazia and south ossettia enjoy a high degree of autonomy does not mean that they are free states with the same status as Russia or Georgia. They should not be on the same level of the list as them. They are bound, by international law, to Georgia and should be listed under it. Their de facto independence is noteworthy, which is why it's included in the footnote. Nagorno-Karabakh is on even shakier ground because it's not even recognised by any real country. 86.17.19.215 (talk) 15:53, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Abkhazia and South Ossetia don't "enjoy a high degree of autonomy", they function completely separately from Georgia. Euphemisms won't change this. Placing them on the level of subdivisions gives the misleading impression that they function as such, when they are, as you say, de facto independent. Nagorno-Karabakh is also completely independent, totally outside of the control of the Azerbaijani government. CMD (talk) 18:30, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

It seems completely clear that these entities should be under their own flag because of the fact that they are de facto independent. For me, thats it. We,as wikipedia cannot take a side in this dispute - simply present things as they are. The fact is they exist and this should be represented. Outback the koala (talk) 02:54, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Agree on flags, but the main dispute here is whether they should be listed under their claimant states in the same way as the autonomous regions are, or in line with states (in both cases italicised). CMD (talk) 12:28, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
I would list them with states. If they are italicised then that would handle the dispute issue. Outback the koala (talk) 23:32, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
If those breakaway regions are considered de-jure parts of certain states, that connection should be demonstrated. Completely detaching them I believe is wrong. Grandmaster 17:40, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
It's demonstrated in their being italicised, and explicitly noted, state by state, in the note below. CMD (talk) 18:22, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
That may not be sufficient. Listing the unrecognized statelets in almost the same manner as de-jure states gives a wrong impression that they all have the same status. While the footnotes provide explanation of their status, the visual display kind of contradicts that. I think this causes most of objections. Italicising is not so much visible. I think the unrecognized entities should somehow be grouped together with the states they are recognized to be parts of. Grandmaster 08:02, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
The italicising is part of the visual display, which in no way contradicts the note. Let's not belittle readers by assuming they can't put two and two together (3 including the map). CMD (talk) 17:25, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

As Russian citizen, I can proove that Tbilisi has NO control over Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Georgian laws have no power in these regions, people of these regions don't have Georgian citizenship, they don't study Georgian language and there's no titles on this language; these territories have their own flag, coat of arms and hymn, own vehicle registration plates. As a national currency uses Russian ruble but not Georgian lari.217.66.156.142 (talk) 08:20, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Clarification needed[edit]

Perhaps there should be a brief NPOV mention of disputed territories in this region with a {{hatnote}} or {{Further}} template:

For further information on disputed territories in this region, see [this], [that] and [the other].
-or-

~E:74.60.29.141 (talk) 10:02, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

There should probably be a section on states and disputed territories. We can just shift the list from the lead. CMD (talk) 12:21, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

backward[edit]

The following paragraph needs to be bumped ahead of the paragraph immediately above it: "In modern times, the Caucasus became a region of war among the Ottoman Empire, Iran and Russia, and was eventually conquered by the latter (see Caucasian Wars)." The article on Caucasian Wars says they took place between 1817–1864, which is a century before the 1918 conquest by the new Soviet Union. The indicated paragraph follows directly from the final sentence of the paragraph it should follow. 71.163.114.49 (talk) 17:45, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

On Transcription of Tehraner Persian (Received Pronunciation) قفقاز[edit]

Dear User:LouisAragon, Generally the letter "q" stands for the phoneme /q/ (Voiceless uvular stop). There is no such a phoneme in Tehraner Persian. The Perso-Arabic letter "qaf" in a typical RP of Tehraner Persian syllable structure pronounces /ɢ/ or /ɣ/ (intervocalic positions). On the other hand, despite the historical Persian vowel system that the vowel pairs differ in length /a/ vs. /a:/ (quantitative distinction), in RP Tehraner Persian they differ in quality /æ/ (near-open front unrounded vowel) vs. /ɒ/ (open back rounded vowel). So "Ghæfghaz" is a better Romanisation/Transcription for قفقاز. X.goodarzie 13:30, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Geographic Map[edit]

Current geographic map is required to be changed. Regions are labeled with nor current legal names neither ones in any other period.

Partially or unrecognized states[edit]

Armenia is not recognized by the Pakistani government, so we must add Armenia to Partially or unrecognized states.

Pakistan was the first country along with Turkey to recognize Azerbaijan after its independence. Pakistan does not recognize Armenia and will never do so. We speak with one voice on NagornoKarabakh. On 14th March, 2008 we together passed the first Resolution 882 on Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan has supported us on Kashmir and we are thankful to you for that.
