Turkish Information

Turkish is spoken in Turkey and Cyprus. Smaller Turkish groups exist in neighboring countries like Greece, Bulgaria, the Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania. It is also spoken by immigrants in Western Europe, particularly in Germany.

Language Facts

Turkish is spoken worldwide, making it the most commonly spoken of the Turkic languages. Its speakers are located predominantly in Turkey and Cyprus, with smaller groups in Iraq, Greece, Bulgaria, the Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and other parts of Eastern Europe. Turkish is also spoken by immigrants in Western Europe, particularly in Germany.

The roots of the language can be traced to Central Asia, with the first written records dating back nearly 1,200 years. To the west, the influence of Ottoman Turkish-the immediate precursor of today's Turkish-spread as the Ottoman Empire expanded. In 1928, as one of Atatürk's Reforms in the early years of the Republic of Turkey, the Ottoman script was replaced with a phonetic variant of the Latin alphabet. Concurrently, the newly-founded Turkish Language Association initiated a drive to reform the language by removing Persian and Arabic loanwords in favor of native variants and coinages from Turkic roots.

The distinctive characteristics of Turkish are vowel harmony and extensive agglutination. This means that it frequently uses affixes, and suffices, or endings. One word can have many affixes and these are used to create new words. The extensive use of affixes can make words very, very long.

The basic word order of Turkish is Subject Object Verb; it also does not have noun classes or grammatical gender. Turkish has a T-V distinction (t = tu and v = vos of Latin): second-person plural forms can be used for individuals as a sign of respect.

Turkish is established as the official standard language of Turkey. However, dialectal variation persists.

Writing

Turkish uses the Latin alphabet.
