Abstract 

This paper presents the results of sociolinguistic research conducted in May to November of 2001 among the Kryz people in northeastern Azerbaijan. The goals of the research were to investigate patterns of language use, bilingualism, and language attitudes with regard to the Kryz Azerbaijani languages in the Kryz community. Of particular interest is the dialect situation between the main Kryz villages. Interviews, observations, and questionnaires were employed.
