Kazak Grammar 

SOMFAI D�VID 
Eotvos Lorand University, Budapest 

Kazak is a Turkic language, it is spoken by some 11 million people in
Kazakstan and its neighboring countries (Russia, Mongolia, China,
Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan). It is spoken on a huge territory between
Tibet and the Volga River, Siberia and the Kara-Kum desert. Kazak
belongs to the Kypchak group of Turkic Languages, which was once the
"Lingua Franca" of the western part of the Mongol Empire. For this
reason Kazak have strong ties with other Turkic languages of Inner and
Central Asia, Kyrgyz, Kazan-Tatar (Volga-Bulgar), Uzbek etc. This
present Material of the Kazak language is an up-to-date grammar, based
on the author's ten-year research among the Kazaks of Kazakstan and
other neighboring countries. During that time the author himself
mastered the language and paid special attention to colloquial Kazak
and the usage of the changing language. In this present work he
summarized up his observation, especially about TAM
(Tense-Mood-Aspect) Categories of the Kazak Verb Morphology and
Auxiliary Verb Formations, which are the basic aspects of
understanding colloquial Kazak, as well as Kazak literature. The
author also gives numerous examples to illustrate the usage of these
morphological aspects. The phonology part explains some phonetic
changes that can be observed only in spoken Kazak, but writing does
not indicate them.
