what can you tell us more about Kabardino-Balkaria and its Bulgarian origin?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)


"The legislative body of the Republic is the Parliament comprising two chambers with 36 deputies elected for a five year term each—the Council of the Republic and the Council of Representatives." It isn't clear whether "each" refers to the terms or the chambers. Are there two 36-member chambers? Unfree (talk) 18:25, 9 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, that would be my screw-up dating all the way back to 2006. The most interesting thing, of course, is that the Parliament is no longer comprised of two chambers, so I edited the passage accordingly. On the bright side, when it was comprised of two chambers, each chamber indeed had 36 members each. Anyhoo, thanks for bringing this to light!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 18:47, June 9, 2009 (UTC)

Name of the republic[edit]

Can anyone tell me why Kabardino-Balkaria is called "Kabardino-Balkar Republic"? (It is called "Kabardino-Balkarskaya Respublika" in Russian, "Kabardey-Balker" or "Kabarty-Malkar" in native languages). It would be logical to call the language Balkarian, and the republic "Kabardino-Balkarian", wouldn't it?

A quick search of google books shows that while both "Kabardino-Balkar Republic" and "Kabardino-Balkarian Republic" are used in the English-language sources (as well as "Kabardino-Balkaria Republic" and a handful of other variants), the former seem to be more common. Perhaps that's the answer to your question, although I understand it does not answer its "why" part. It's always worth remembering that usage of any term in any language is not exactly based on logic, however.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); December 16, 2013; 16:14 (UTC)

Necessary Improvements[edit]

Could someone with knowledge and expertise on the subject help to improve the article? It is very poor on solid information, and it is filled with too much lists and number statistics. If there is a corresponding article in russian - and if it is good enough - could someone translate, and pass the info to this article? It needs fine and decent improvements.
