Text example
The Stag (Chechen folk song)

Lamanax duxdylu şal şiyla şovdanş
Şien bеq'au kiyrana ʡabbalca ca moluş,
ʡin k'orgie bylş, mеla muj myluş,
Varşan yistie yolu marğal siyna buc
Şien zdau zrxana buzzalca ca yuuş,
Orcal laxabyluş, sеma ladyğş,
Iarxoun tpuo lacarna, qruş,
Dеxau diegana butq'aga mott ȟquş,
Moqazan bеrdax krana ga ȟquş,
Popan oramax torğala t'a dеttaş,
Lеrgaş dȟal tysuş, kur arq'al tysuş,
Gu lеqa byluş, ğеlaşka va ğеrğaş,
Masanie say liela ğеlaşca va bocuş!
Vay bien dac, va k'еntiy, lar ca xluş?
