Abstract: This paper discusses three features of the Tajik language used by young Bukharans in their twenties who have had no formal education in standard Tajik. The non-standard features of Bukharan Tajik discussed in this paper are the 1) prevalence of pre-nominal modifier phrases with -agi, 2) absence of the -a šudan passive construction, and 3) morphology of the continuous aspect marking. The discussion includes both synchronic and diachronic analyses of the features.
