What is Uyghur? Why Study It?

It’s the native language of over 20 million people in East Turkistan (also known by some as Uyghur Autonomous Region) and Central Asia. There are more Uyghurs than Swedish in the Uyghur Autonomous Region (also known by some as East Turkistan), occupies one sixth of China’s territory, nearly as large as Alaska.

East Turkistan (also known by some as Uyghur Autonomous Region) was once called the “back of beyond.”  Coming from Beijing or Shanghai to Uyghur Region, you enter a different world. Ringing barren deserts are lush oasis towns, where in summer you can slake your thirst with the pick of delicious melons and grapes.

The neighborhoods thrum with a Middle Eastern beat. Mosques and minarets grace the skyline. Street vendors offer spices, nuts, and fruits, jeweled knives, richly embroidered caps, or seasoned kebabs and savory Central Asian pilaf.

Uyghur is the official language of the Uyghur Autonomous Region

Uyghur is related to Turkish and other Central Asian languages like Uzbek and Tatar. The Uyghurs use an improved version of the Arabic script to write their language, like this: ئۇيغۇر تىلى .  It’s alphabet, not Chinese characters! Uyghur grammar is logical and simpler than languages like Russian or Arabic, without all the confusing gender changes. Although Uyghur vocabulary is basically Turkic in origin, it has loan words from Arabic, Persian and Russian.
