A large number of linguistic features in Tajik, an Iranian language, are considered to have emerged or have been retained under the influence of Uzbek, the Turkic language with which Tajik has been in contact for many centuries.
In this paper, I focus on one linguistic feature in Tajik and try to demonstrate that it has emerged as a result of prolonged language contact between Tajik and Uzbek.
