Description:The widespread picture of linguistic diversity in the Caucasus as ‘the mountain of languages’ will be immediately confirmed if a closer look is taken at the region: multiethnic, multilingual, multireligious is the adequate description of this melting pot. What is responsible for the present-day ethnic, linguistic and sociocultural diversity is the historical coexistence of different ethnic groups in a geographically delimited region on the one hand, and the geopolitical situation at the border between the Orient and the Occident on the other. At the same time, this diversity leads to mutual influence of different kinds, ranging from linguistic and religious to ethnic assimilation. In this article, we will outline the results of relevant international projects in the field of ‘language documentation’ that we conducted over the past 15 years and what we have learned from these projects.
