About Kuban Arabic Okay, hear me out. You have some Arab pirate bois in the 9th century who want some Circassian money. So they settle in the Kuban and don't leave because they like sunbathing, and it's a bit hard to leave the Black Sea. Then the Russians come and now you have an Arabic dialect (or probably a separate language at this point) that sounds like Russian. Woops.

Basically a Semitic language descended from Classical Arabic with Adyghe/Kabardian influenced vocabulary and grammar, as well as influence from Russian in grammar, scientific vocabulary, and pronunciation.
