Abstract:
			
Kyrgyz is a Turkic language, it is spoken by some 3,5 million people
in Kyrgyzstan and its neighbouring countries (Uzbekistan, China,
Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Kazakstan). It is spoken in the valleys and
plateaus of the Tianshan and Pamir-Alai Mountain Ranges (e.g. Ch=FCi
Valley, Talas Valley, Kara-Tegin). The Kyrgyz language belongs to the
Kypchak group, although genetically related to South Siberian Turkic
languages. During the Mongol Era, the Kyrgyz became the language of
the nomad groups in the Chagatai Empire.  It was strongly influenced
by the Kazak and Uzbek languages.  This present material of the Kyrgyz
language is an up-to-date grammar based on the author's five-year
research with the Kyrgyz of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan (where the
disappearing South dialect is still alive). In this book he tried to
summarize up his observations, just as he did it in his first book
about the Kazak language. There are useful information about the TAM
(Tense-Mood-Aspect) categories of verb morphology, auxiliary verb
formations and numerous examples to illustrate them. These aspects
help to understand Kyrgyz literature and colloquial speech as
well. The phonology part explains the main phonetic rules that can be
observed only in spoken Kyrgyz.
