Karay (Karaim) is one of the endangered languages of the world. It belongs
to the Kipchak branch of the Turkic languages. Today, only 20 persons can
speak and write fluently in Karay out of ca. 2,500 people who are believed
to preserve their ethnic identity in various countries (Lithuania, Poland,
Crimea in Ukraine, Turkey, Israel, France, and the US). The present work is
a handbook for the spoken Karay language of the Trakai dialect in Lithuania
apart from the Halich and the Crimean dialects of Karay. The Karay phrases
based on the spoken Karay were prepared in 1999 by the spiritual leader of
the Lithuanian Karays, Mykolas Firkovicius who died in 2000, and were
translated into English by Timur Kocaoğlu.

The grammar is consisted of an introduction to the Karay language followed
by a grammatical description of the spoken Karay based on the Trakai
dialect of Lithuania, 800 Karay phrases in both Lithuanian and Turkic Latin
alphabets with their English translations, and the Karay-English word list
with full grammatical index, plus bibliography.
