Godoberi (self-name gibdidi) is one of the ethnic groups of Dagestan, in terms of language and cultural development, which belong to the Andian subgroup of the Avaro-Ando-Tsezy subgroup of Nakh-Dagestan languages. Godoberians live compactly only in two villages in the north of Dagestan - in Zibirkhali and Godoberi. Godoberians speak a non-written language (gibdidi mizzi). Nevertheless, the speech of the inhabitants of the villages of Godoberi and Zibirhali differs, making up two dialects, each of which has a number of phonetic and lexical features. According to rough estimates, the total number of Godoberians is about 8 thousand people. The language is threatened with extinction, as it is a common language among a limited number of native speakers. The Avar language is studied in the school as the native language, the official language of the Godoberians is Russian.
