Turkish at SPRACHWEISER
From far away
Turkish is a Turkic language. This means that it is closely related to Mongolian and has its roots somewhere in Central Asia. From 1300, it was the language of the Ottoman Empire and was written using Arabic letters.
It was only in 1928 that the Latin alphabet was introduced as part of Atatürk’s reforms. The orthography is relatively phonemic and there are only a few letters that the English alphabet doesn’t have, for example the Turkish “ç” for the sound [ch] (as in “chair”).
There are approximately 75 million native Turkish speakers in the world today. It is the official language in Turkey and Cyprus, and is used as a regional official language in Macedonia, Romania and Kosovo. The biggest language islands are Germany with around 2 million speakers and Bulgaria with over 1 million speakers.
