Text example
Poem by Bahadir Keleš

Šk'u do šk'u biyat.
Ar vrosi dolobinborat.
Peyatepe ǰebvrosat.
Andǧani panda var bzirat.
Atxe do andǧani buntalat,
ar vrosi ndǧa dopčadat,
hašote ǰendǧani bovedat,
andǧani panda var bzirat.
Miti guri moǰebutinat.
Iri oropa mebutišat.
Peyatobaša bišletinat.
Andǧani panda var bzirat.
Vrosoba dadala ren!
Peyatoba dačxurin!
J̌ebondziratna peyatoba,
dižvalasen vrosoba...
