    Note: This entry covers the entire group of Northeastern Neo-Aramaic languages spoken currently or formerly in the historical territory of Bohtan, including the variety known as Hértevin [hrt]. While there is considerable internal variation within this group, the degree of mutual intelligibility between varieties is unknown and unlikely to be discovered, as speakers are now very few and scattered across the world.
