Zoggian (nóz; Russian зогский) is a rare language, morphologically close to Sino-Tibetan, but in vocabulary totally unique. It is currently spoken by 832 native speakers mostly living around the river Aldan (villages Krelskaya, Urgu and Nemki) and few academics all-over-the-world.

The language was described for the first time by David D. Khauser and his colleagues from Yakutsk University in 1987, in journal Потерянные языка России (Lost languages of Russia) in article Старшее дерев в лесу - Язык ноз (Older than trees in forest – Noz language); 56 (1989) 243-267.
