  • Kyrgyz language

    Kyrgyz (кыргызча) [kir] is a Turkic language mainly spoken in Kyrgyzstan but also in Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Russia as well as China where it is one of the 56 ethnic groups. Kyrgyz belongs to the Kypchak languages with Kazakh and Tatar. It has been successively written in the Turkic runes, then with a Perso-Arabic alphabet, before a Latin-script alphabet and Cyrillic alphabet were adopted. Among famous works of literature, we can mention the Epic of Manas - Манас дастаны, performed by the traditional manaschi, or the love songs and poems of Jolon Mamytov - Жолон Мамытов (1940 –1988).
