    Nogai is a Turkic language spoken in Southwestern European Russia and in Turkey. Three distinct dialects are recognized:Karanogay or Qara-Nogai, spoken in Dagestan, Central Nogai or Nogai Proper, in Stavropol, and Aqnogai, by the Kuban River, its tributaries in Karachay–Cherkessia and in the Mineralnye Vody District. Qara-Nogai and Nogai Proper are very close linguistically, whereas Aqnogai is more different. However, all three are mutually intelligible.
