 Northwest Caucasian languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northwest Caucasian languages, also called Pontic, Abkhaz-Adyghe, or Circassian, are a group of languages spoken in the Caucasus region, chiefly in Russia (Adygea, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia), Georgia (Abkhazia), and Turkey, with smaller communities scattered throughout the Middle East.
They do not generally permit more than one finite verb in a sentence, which precludes the existence of subordinate clauses in the Indo-European sense; equivalent functions are performed by extensive arrays of nominal and participial non-finite verb forms (although Abkhaz appears to be developing limited subordinate clauses, perhaps under the influence of Russian).
Circassian (or Cherkess) is a cover term for the series of dialects that include the literary languages of Adyghe and Kabardian.

 Prodigies by James G. Mundie - Circassian Beauty
Circassian beauties, or "Moss-haired Girls" as they were sometimes known, reflect a curious legacy of racial stereotyping and sexual titillation.
Racial theories of the mid 19th century held that the people living in the Circassian mountains near the Black Sea were examples of the “purest stock” of the Caucasian race.
The Circassian beauty was an instant success, soon to be followed by a succession of ‘imported’ beauties with an enigmatic letter Z figuring prominently in all their names.
