Abstract:

Kyrgyz

Dávid Somfai Kara
Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest)

Kyrgyz is a Turkic language, it is spoken by some 3,5 million people in
Kyrgyzstan and its neighbouring countries (Uzbekistan, China, Tajikistan,
Afghanistan, Kazakstan). It is spoken in the valleys and plateaus of the
Tianshan and Pamir-Alai Mountain Ranges (e.g. Chüi Valley, Talas Valley,
Kara-Tegin). The Kyrgyz language belongs to the Kypchak group, although
genetically related to South Siberian Turkic languages. During the Mongol
Era, the Kyrgyz became the language of the nomad groups in the Chagatai
Empire. It was strongly influenced by the Kazak and Uzbek languages. This
present material of the Kyrgyz language is an up-to-date grammar based on
the author's five-year research with the Kyrgyz of Kyrgyzstan and
Tajikistan (where the disappearing South dialect is still alive). In this
book he tried to summarize up his observations, just as he did it in his
first book about the Kazak language. There are useful information about the
TAM (Tense-Mood-Aspect) categories of verb morphology, auxiliary verb
formations and numerous examples to illustrate them. These aspects help to
understand Kyrgyz literature and colloquial speech as well. The phonology
part explains the main phonetic rules that can be observed only in spoken
Kyrgyz.
