From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kubachins in 1936.

The Kubachi (alternatively Kubachin) are a Muslim Peoples of the Caucasus Mountains [1] who speak the Kubachi language in the Kubachi village of the Republic of Dagestan, Russia. They are sometimes regarded as a separate people.[2] Ethnologue lists Kubachi within the Dargin dialect continuum but recognizes that it may be a separate language.[3] The toponym 'Kubachi' derives from Turkic kübeci, 'maker of chain-mail' (< Turk. kübe, küpe, originally 'small metal ring'; see Clauson 1972: 687;. Toparh et al. 2003: 166, 167).[4][5]
