Ingush (ГІалгІай, Ğalğaj) belongs to the Northeast Caucasian family, and more precisely to the Nakh family. Official language in Ingushetia, it is also spoken in Chechnya, Kazakhstan and Russia and counts about 400,000 speakers.
Transliteration system: ISO 9
The international standard ISO 9 establishes a system for the transliteration into Latin characters of Cyrillic characters constituting the alphabets of many Slavic and some non-Slavic languages. This system is univocal, as one character is represented by one equivalent character (by the use of diacritics), which represents the original spelling and allows for reverse transliteration (or retroconversion). The first versions of the standard were based on the scholarly system, but the latest version, ISO:1995, emphasizes the unambiguity of the transliteration instead of the phonemic representation.
