Votic is the language spoken by the Votes of Ingria. It is closely related to Estonian, it is in the Balto-Finnic subgroup of Finno-Ugric languages. Votic is spoken only in Krakolye and Luzhitsy, two villages in the Kingisepp district, and is close to extinction. In 1989 there were 62 speakers left, the youngest born in 1930. In its 24 December 2005 issue, The Economist wrote that there are only approximately 20 speakers left.
In the 19th century it was already declining in favour of Russian, but its decline was accelerated under Soviet rule, when the Vote population diminished by 90% between 1926 and 1959. Since then, the Votes have, as far as possible, concealed their Votic identity, pretending to be Russians in the predominantly Russian environment. Votic originally previously several dialects: Western, Eastern, Kukkusi and Kreevin (an enclave in Latvia). Of these, Kreevin became extinct in the 19th century and Eastern in the 1960s.
No official orthography exists for Votic, rather many unofficial orthographies. Some use a modified Cyrillic alphabet, and some Latin. The orthographies based on Latin have many similarities with closely related Balto-Finnic languages, such as the use of č for /ʧ/. At least a couple ways exist for marking short versus long vowels in Votic, which is sometimes to place a macron over the vowel (such as ā), or to double the vowel (aa). Geminate consonants are generally represented with two characters. The representation of central vowels varies, and in some cases the practice is to use the Finno-Ugric transcription of e̮, and in other cases the letter õ (which is somewhat similar to the Estonian sound) is used.
