Andic languages

Linguistic classification:

Northeast Caucasian

Glottolog: andi1254[1]

The Andic languages are a branch of the Northeast Caucasian language family. They are often grouped together with the Avar language and (formerly) with the Tsezic (Didoic) languages to form an Avar–Andic (or Avar–Andic–Didoic) branch of that family.
