From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Iron (Ossetic: Ирон, Iron or Ирон æвзаг, Iron ævzag) is one of the two main dialects of the Ossetic language[1], spoken in the Caucasus. The majority of the Ossetians speak Iron, notably in the East, South and Central parts of North Ossetia-Alania, while in the West the Digor dialect is much more prevalent. This dominance can be shown in the fact that written Ossetic is almost exclusively in the Iron dialect.[1]
