The Turkish language – characteristics and spread

Turkish belongs to the Oghuz languages, and is the official language of Turkey. Turkish has numerous dialects; the Istanbul dialect constitutes high Turkish. Other dialects in Turkey are spoken in the Black Sea region, Eastern Anatolia and on the Aegean. A total of about 70 million people spoke Turkish according to 2007 figures.

Around 845,000 people speak Turkish in Bulgaria, and 37,000 people speak it in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan. Turkish Cyprus has around 180,000 native speakers, Greece has 130,000; around 63,600 speakers lived in Belgium in 1984, about 170,000 in Austria in 2000, and around two million in Germany according to 2003 figures. Romania has 14,000 Turkish speakers and former Yugoslavia, especially Macedonia, has 250,000.

Turkish has been written in an alphabet co-developed by Kemal Atatürk and based on the Latin alphabet since 1928. Atatürk called this new system of writing the “new Turkish alphabet,” and used the Istanbul dialect for orthography and the more general language reform. There are no exceptions in writing and pronunciation rules.
