Abkhaz (abk) (sometimes spelled Abxaz; Аҧсуа бызшәа [apʰswa bɨzʃʷa]) is a Northwest Caucasian (Abkhazo-Adygean) language spoken by approximately 125 thousand people, mostly in Abkhazia with significant diaspora in Turkey. It is the national and official language of Abkhazia. It is well known for its extremely rich inventory of consonants and a very limited set of vowel phonemes. Among the other Northwest Caucasian languages it enjoys a relatively favorable sociolinguistic situation: in Abkhazia it is quite widely used in politics, business, administration and media.
